Melville, NY—Forbes has recognized Canon USA as one of America’s Best Employers for Veterans 2022. Forbes and Statista Inc. announced the prestigious ranking of companies, which is now on the Forbes website.
“Canon is honored to be recognized as one of our country’s best employers for veterans,” said N. Scott Millar, senior vice president & general manager, corporate human resources, audit, ethics & business consultation, Canon USA, Inc., and senior vice president, human resources, Canon Solutions America, Inc.

America’s Best Employers for Veterans
Forbes and Statista selected America’s Best Employers for Veterans 2022 based on independent surveys of roughly 7,000 U.S. veterans. They work part-time or full-time for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S.
The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees. Moreover, they were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
Furthermore, participants were asked to give their opinion on a series of statements related to general topics regarding their own employer. For example, atmosphere/development, image, working conditions, salary/wage, workplace as well as diversity. Statista also asked them about topics related specifically to the interests of veterans in the workplace.
According to Statista, the title America’s Best Employers for Veterans 2022 serves to reinforce Canon’s reputation as a company that provides excellent employment opportunities for U.S. veterans.
Dan Schultz, a U.S. veteran, has work at Canon for nearly 20 years. He is currently the senior logistics director at Canon USA, Inc.
“I joined the military for the opportunities to obtain a world-class education, serve my country, lead like-minded people, as well as gain exposure to people, places, and cultures throughout the world,” said Schultz.
“In the military, and in business, mission and objective accomplishments are always at the forefront. Pursuing the harder right, rather than the easier compromise, is a trait I developed in the military. It has continued to serve me well throughout my career at Canon.”
