Serco distinguished itself among competitors by being recognized as a Top 10 Military Friendly Employer and a Top 10 Military Spouse Friendly Employer notably through the efforts of its Veterans and military spouse-focused Employee Resource Group, SercoVets. This impactful network offers Veterans, military spouses and all who support them a platform for professional development, mentorship, transition support, volunteering initiatives, and networking opportunities.
