Lexmark offers a free training program for U.S. veterans and soon-to-be-separated active duty personnel who are interested in a career as a field service technician. Veterans can enroll in the Lexmark VALORR Printer Service Training program to access self-paced online Lexmark printer service training modules. Completing these modules allows participants to achieve certification to service Lexmark products, which enhances the participants’ ability to apply for the position of a Lexmark certified field service technician.
Once on board, veterans at Lexmark can take advantage of our progressive military leave policies and the variety of employee engagement and development opportunities our company offers. Some of these are geared specifically toward veterans, such as providing trained veteran mentors. In addition, Lexmark sponsors a variety of events throughout the year through our diversity network group devoted to recognizing and honoring veterans in the Lexington community and supporting military family members of Lexmark employees. Veterans Association of Lexmark (VALORR) is made up of active and retired military, and family members of current veterans rallied around the idea of developing and executing outreach programs in support of veterans, active duty personnel, and their families.
In recognition of these efforts, Lexmark was awarded the 2020 Freedom Award from Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), which is the highest U.S. Government honor presented to employers for support of National Guard and Reserve employees, and named a 2022 Military Friendly Gold Employer by Viqtory Media.
