Huntington Ingalls Industries is America’s largest military shipbuilding company and a provider of professional services to partners in government and industry. For more than a century, HII’s Newport News and Ingalls shipbuilding divisions in Virginia and Mississippi have built more ships in more ship classes than any other U.S. naval shipbuilder. HII’s Technical Solutions division provides a wide range of professional services through its Fleet Support, Mission Driven Innovative Solutions, Nuclear & Environmental, and Oil & Gas groups. Headquartered in Newport News, Virginia, HII employs more than 41,000 people operating both domestically and internationally.
Kellye Walker, HII’s chief legal officer, talks about the role of the Law Department, her team and why everybody at the company is responsible for compliance.
Amy Iveson, HII’s manager of health and wellness strategy, says the recently launched “Know Your Numbers” campaign is an important component of HII’s transformation.
“It’s saying that well-being is important,” she said. “In my 30 years of health care experience, I have never seen a company invest so much in well-being. That alone is going to transform not just the company and the culture, but it’s going to transform the business by employees being able to bring their best selves to work every day.”
Huntington Ingalls Industries was recently named one of the best employers for new college graduates in 2018 by Forbes. HII was ranked 21 of 250 employers in the nationwide survey.
