Honeywell celebrates its veterans all year long, as the company is forever grateful for all the sacrifices its military colleagues have made.

This might be reason why Honeywell is included in Glassdoor's ‘9 Awesome Companies Hiring Veterans Now!’

Below, Honeywell’s Linda LaGorga shares her experiences of serving in the military from 1990-1994, and explains how her time as a Lieutenant has helped her in her current position as Honeywell’s Vice President, Business Analysis and Planning.

Linda, who served at the Naval Air Facility Washington and Navy Security Group Activity Sugar Grove, says: “As Public Works Officer, I led the team who managed the operations, maintenance and development of base facilities and the transportation fleet.”

Now with Honeywell, she leads the organization that is responsible for the consolidated financial planning including annual planning (AOP), short-range outlooks (SRO), ongoing financial analysis to drive business actions and outcomes, management reporting and other company-wide financial initiatives.

“Teamwork is critical to achieving the best results and outcomes in any role. My teams in the military included people with diverse backgrounds, skills and experiences. I quickly learned the importance of listening and fostering a culture of open idea generation,” Linda says.

“Throughout my career, this approach has positioned me to make better decisions, drive buy-in for change management and reach targeted goals.”

Linda explains: “Honeywell’s behaviors and principles align well with values and skills of military veterans including integrity, results-driven leadership, accountability and perseverance.”
