Committed to Diversity

Diversity fosters innovation, advances creativity, improves and enhances employee culture, and brings variety in thought and performance to those we serve. As we continue our rapid growth, we are constantly implementing innovative improvements to our culture and benefits for all employees, including military veterans. At LMI, we believe that you change your uniform, not your mission. Service to our customers’ missions is in our DNA.

Ensuring Successful Transitions

“Change your uniform, not your mission.” That’s what we tell the veterans who join LMI every year. These individuals do more than just fit our culture. They define it. And that’s a big reason why one in three LMIers is a veteran or military spouse. They make us a stronger company. They make us a better provider to our customers. And it’s an honor to help them continue their careers in leadership and service.

LMI strengthened its commitment to hiring veterans in 2019 with its participation in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) Corporate Fellowship Program. HOH helps transitioning service members gain private-sector work experience prior to their separation from the military. At LMI, HOH fellows participate in an 11-week career skills program, conducting a capstone project that culminates in a presentation to the senior leadership team. LMI hosted two HOH cohorts in 2019, with more planned for 2020.

Other avenues to bring veterans aboard include Hire Vets Now, a statewide initiative run by the Virginia Department of Veterans Services and the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, and the HOH Military Spouse Fellowship Program.

Best for Vets 2019

LMI has been named a Best for Vets employer every year since the inaugural list in 2010.
