Canon U.S.A., a provider of digital imaging solutions, announces that Forbes has recognized Canon as one of America’s 2022 best employers for veterans. Forbes and Statista Inc. announced the company’s inclusion in this ranking of companies this month.

Forbes and Statista selected these companies based on independent surveys of roughly 7,000 U.S. veterans working part-time or full-time for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S.

The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees that were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.

Furthermore, participants were asked to give their opinion on a series of statements related to general topics regarding their own employer, for example, atmosphere and development, image, working conditions, salary and wage, workplace, diversity, and a set of topics related specifically to the interests of veterans in the workplace.

“Canon is honored to be recognized as one of our country’s best employers for veterans,” says N. Scott Millar, senior vice president and general manager, corporate human resources, audit, ethics & business consultation, Canon U.S.A. and senior vice president, human resources, Canon Solutions America. “We are proud to support our veterans, as well as their families, and we would like to thank Forbes and Statista for this outstanding accolade.”

According to Statista, the title “America’s Best Employers for Veterans 2022” serves to reinforce Canon’s reputation as a company that provides excellent employment opportunities for U.S. veterans. Dan Schultz is a U.S. veteran and has now been part of the Canon team for nearly 20 years.

“I joined the military for the opportunities to obtain a world-class education, serve my country, lead like-minded people, and gain exposure to people, places, and cultures throughout the world,” explains Dan Schultz, senior logistics director at Canon U.S.A. “In the military and in business, mission and objective accomplishments are always at the forefront. Pursuing the harder right, rather than the easier compromise, is a trait I developed in the military, and it has continued to serve me well throughout my career at Canon.”
