Forbes selected GovernmentCIO for its annual list of Top 100 Companies for Remote Work, recognizing businesses that lead in providing the ability to telecommute while also meeting their organizations’ missions.

Forbes officials issued the honor prior to many global businesses transitioning to more flexible telework policies in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Never before has there been as much focus on offering employees remote working opportunities.

VLM is designed to celebrate the full scope of each veteran’s life, with plans to further develop the program and include additional space for family members to memorialize the course of a veteran’s life after they’ve retired from service. The goal is both reverential and civic-minded, allowing family members to honor how veterans continued serving their country and community after their time in the armed forces.
