We don't just thank service members for serving our country.

We hire them.

You served our country. Some serve still. You sacrificed daily and your families sacrificed too. You forged lifelong friendships and acquired life-changing perspectives - perspectives that remain long after the uniform.

BD recognizes the special role veterans and troops play in our mission of advancing the world of health™. Being a military-friendly organization is an important part of BD's commitment to a culture of inclusion and diversity. It's not just for vets, but for all of us. So together we can all support and advance both professionally and personally.

At BD, we have a deep history of honoring those who’ve served our country, that extends back to our founders - whose son’s, Henry Becton and Dick Dickinson served in the Army Air Corp and U.S. Coast Guard. Working with BD is an opportunity to continue serving your country – and the world – in a whole new way that you can be proud of.

Transitioning From Military To Civilian Purpose

At BD, we are proud to support transitioning military personnel from their time in the service to civilian life and the business world. Through our growing Skillbridge Program and newly minted Hire our Heroes partnership, we continue to identify ways to identify, connect, attract and engage top talent from this cohort. New military and veterans will receive help adapting and acclimating into the new civilian corporate culture by being paired with a buddy who is also a veteran during on-boarding to help with everything from questions only another veteran would understand to having a veteran shoulder to lean on and help them along their way.
