Veterans Day - November 11. Service shapes ServiceNow. Our veterans, the world over, make us stronger.

Veterans are part of the fabric of ServiceNow, where we celebrate veterans from around the world for their invaluable contributions.

Despite their commonalities, every veteran has a unique story. As Harry T., a US Air Force veteran, points out, he's “not a monolith.” “Just because we’re a vet doesn't mean we’re all the same,” he says. “Treat us like everybody else.”

A heart for service

One theme that consistently bubbles up in our conversations with veterans at ServiceNow is their dedication to serving others and an attitude of selflessness.

“It’s really important to recruit veterans into the workplace. A resume doesn’t do justice to what leadership qualities veterans and active-duty military members have. A lot of times, you’re doing things for the person next to you, not just yourself,” says Avery L., a wife and daughter of veterans.

Theo C., a veteran of the US Marines, exemplifies that sentiment both throughout his military service and in his civilian life. After his time in the service, Theo took on a part-time job to support his family during extraordinarily challenging times while completing his degree at Stanford University.

“One thing I learned from my mom is never to quit,” he shares.

Finding connection

“It feels good to be able to connect with people in the (ServiceNow) veterans belonging group who have had similar experiences to me and my husband,” Avery says.

“I am very thankful for this opportunity for giving me the chance to get started in my career. Now I’m able to support my family,” Theo adds, in reference to ServiceNow’s programs for veterans and new employees.

We thank Theo, Avery, Harry, and all veterans for their service.
