At Altria, we appreciate and honor the men and women of the Armed Forces and their family members who have stood beside them. We are proud to support many employees who have served our country.

Altria was recognized by VIQTORY as a 2021 Military Friendly® Employer. 

We are leaders in an evolving industry, and are working to shape its future. With adult smoker demand for smoke-free alternatives, innovation and an appropriate regulatory framework, we have the opportunity to make more progress on harm reduction in the next 10 years than we have in the past 50 years.

In fact, our future success depends on it. To do this requires proven leadership, a commitment to the team, tireless dedication and unyielding integrity – just the kind of qualities that can come from military experience.

Employee Resource Group

SALUTE, Altria's Military Network, is a community for all Altria employees whose interests align with supporting active duty, reserve, former military service members and their families.

The ERG’s vision is to leverage and raise awareness of the skills, values and unique culture that current and former military service members contribute to the success of Altria's mission. SALUTE facilitates a variety of initiatives, including employee mentoring/buddy programs, networking, and connecting with external support organizations.


Employee Involvement

Our employees' community action platform is called "act" – Altria Contributing Together. Employees take pride in helping our communities thrive. They get involved through volunteering and workplace giving – strengthening our connection to the world around us and helping us learn to lead more inclusively. Many of our SALUTE employees initiate or participate in volunteer events with a variety of local military and veteran support organizations.
