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.
Ingalls Shipbuilding's Talent Development Labs—a year-old partnership with Gulf Coast high schools—are another example of how the division is developing the shipbuilders of the future.
“The talent labs are transforming our communities,” said Edmond Hughes, Ingalls’ vice president, Human Resources and Administration, “by allowing us to show students what are the careers that are available and the options that are out there for them if they want to remain here in the community.”
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.
