Yellow Ribbon Colleges and Universities (Companies)

What is a Yellow Ribbon Company?

A Yellow Ribbon Company is a broad, organizationally structured company with national, regional, and statewide influence. A Yellow Ribbon designation is proclaimed from the State of Minnesota. In addition, a Yellow Ribbon Company needs to contain essential areas, including an HR Recruiting and HR Policy and Procedure Department, Training and Development, and Community and Employee Outreach and Support Departments.

A Yellow Ribbon Company unites all key areas within a company structure to create a comprehensive network that connects and coordinates these areas throughout the company for the purpose of proactively supporting Servicemembers and military families. Please note that Companies without broad organizational structures to include the above key areas or national, regional, and statewide influence should partner with local Yellow Ribbon Communities to make a difference and demonstrate their support to Servicemembers and military families.
