Lilly is the Natural Next Step for Many Veterans
Article Sponsored by: Lilly
Lilly celebrates a long history of commitment to veterans and supporting the military, both in the workplace and in the community. In May 1876, Colonel Eli Lilly founded what would later become the global research-based company Eli Lilly and Company. Lilly is the only major U.S. pharmaceutical company founded by a U.S. military veteran.
As a company founded by a veteran, support for members of our military is part of the DNA at Lilly. Lilly offers an environment that is supportive to members of our military. The Lilly commitment to our military includes career opportunities, veteran community programs, volunteerism and other aid.
As a global healthcare leader, Lilly gives military members an opportunity to transition their skills and strengths to important work in the private sector. Lilly employees around the world work to discover and bring life-changing medicines to those who need them, improve the understanding and management of disease, and give back to communities.
The efforts of Lilly and Lilly employees have been recognized with a number of awards, including the Indiana Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) 2013 Pro Patria award. The Pro Patria award is presented to employers who demonstrate exceptional support for our national defense by adopting personnel policies that make it easier for employees to participate in the National Guard and Reserve.
Additionally, ESGR recently recognized Lilly’s Scott Lindsay with the individual Patriot Award for his support of employees like Army Reservist Julia Sweet.
To further the Lilly commitment to veterans, The Veterans Leadership Network (VLN) was formed in 2009. The VLN is committed to bringing together the community of veterans at Lilly and to enhancing the leadership culture at Lilly through its mission to:
• Foster relationships with the military and veteran community in Indianapolis
The VLN also has helped supervisors understand and appreciate the talents that former and current military service members bring to the company through an event called “Boss Lift,” which gives supervisors and senior leaders the opportunity to experience military service through simulation and experiential learning.
In addition to supporting military service, Lilly has supported numerous programs that address the needs of veterans and those currently serving in the military:
Members of the military are encouraged to explore Lilly’s career opportunities and the advantages of working for a company that is focused on making life better for people around the world. Lilly offers competitive salaries, training and development, health, and many other benefits. Available opportunities can be viewed at Lilly.com/careers.
Lilly currently provides time off for military duty and military family service member-related leaves, including military leave duty such as involuntary or voluntary activation, training, military family leave and military family member-related leave. Additionally, Lilly works with employees serving to ensure that benefits, pay, years of service to the company and other details are handled in a manner that supports the employee’s ability to serve while maintaining his or her future with Lilly.
