The Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Awards recognise businesses who employ and support Australian military veterans, as well as recognise veterans who are making a significant contribution to the workforce as an employee or entrepreneur.

The Awards are an initiative of the Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Program.

Our 2020 finalists are proud supporters of veteran employment or have demonstrated outstanding achievements since transitioning from the Australian Defence Force.

Each finalist has a story to tell, so click on their profile to learn more about them.

The Awards ceremony scheduled for Tuesday 24 March at Parliament House, has been cancelled due to advice in response to COVID-19.

The Awards winners will be recognised in an online announcement available on the website and through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Facebook channel.

Please continue to check the website for updates on the announcement.

“These finalists represent a variety of organisations in a range of industries that have seen the incredible value in hiring veterans as part of their business and they should be congratulated on their support of veterans and their families.”


There was a record 129 nominations for the 2020 Awards, the highest in the Awards’ three year history. The 24 finalists were selected from across the country; from large, medium and small organisations across a range of industries and professions.

Read what Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Minister for Veterans' Affairs and Defence Personnel Darren Chester had to say about the finalists.
