Enterprise Holdings has a longstanding tradition of recognizing and rewarding the unique skills and talents of former military service members. These proven leaders possess a high level of dedication, work ethic and team spirit that translates well to our business.

Enterprise’s support for the military goes back six decades. The organization is named after the USS Enterprise, one of the aircraft carriers our founder, Jack Taylor, served on as a U.S. Navy pilot during World War II. It’s widely recognized as the most decorated warship in U.S. military history. When Jack founded Enterprise, he brought with him the values he had learned in the Navy.

Today, Enterprise Holdings’ support of the military focuses on three key areas – recruitment and hiring, local operations and community relations. Military veterans and members of the guard and reserves currently make up more than 10% of Enterprise Holdings' total U.S. workforce, including those at the more-than-60 U.S. military installations Enterprise serves. 

Recognition and Support

Our support for service members and their families has been widely recognized. Enterprise has been named a Military Friendly Employer from the publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine, Top Veteran-Friendly Company by U.S. Veterans Magazine, “Best for Vets: Employers” by the Military Times publishing organization and Most Valuable Employer for Military by

In addition, Enterprise is a member of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) and has been recognized as a Military Friendly Spouse Employer from the publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine. Enterprise employs more than 2,000 military spouses.

In 2005, Enterprise received Five-Star recognition in the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Statement of Support Program, and was recognized with the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award – the highest honor given by the U.S. government to employers that support their employees’ service in the National Guard and Reserve.

We also bring our dedication to the military to life by supporting organizations that make a positive impact on the lives of veterans, including Fisher House and the annual Keys to Progress® program – which annually gives more than 100 veterans newly refurbished vehicles.
