Comerica has an active veteran’s recruitment strategy, which is communicated regularly to human resources professionals, hiring managers and executives. Several veteran-specific strategies and practices to attract veteran talent include connecting with the Veteran Leadership Network ERNG and the Veteran Market Segmentation Initiative (MSI) team for veteran referrals, implementation of veteran-friendly job qualifications, and specific relationships with local and regional veteran representatives.

Comerica has a strong relationship with the Michigan Veteran Affairs Agency and participates in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce job fairs. In addition, Comerica has provided support on a national level for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves (ESGR). In 2018, the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency selected Comerica as a Silver Level Certified Veteran Friendly Employer recognizing Comerica’s dedication to recruiting, hiring, training and maintaining veteran talent.

Comerica is one of 10 companies participating in the Guard and Reserve Interview Promise (GRIP) program pilot sponsored by the Michigan Veteran Affairs Agency. Under GRIP, military-friendly employers like Comerica promise to interview Guard and Reserve members whose military occupational qualifications meet appropriate job opening classifications as determined by a workforce assessment with the employer.
