Humana Military joins more than 80 defense contractors as a signatory.

“We are proud to be accepted into the Defense Industry Initiative as it is another measure to ensure our military customer, Congress and the Department of Defense that we conduct business with a high level of integrity,” said Dave Baker, president and CEO of Humana Military. “It is our responsibility to do business ethically.”

DII ensures consistent compliance with their principles of business ethics and conduct of signatory companies by requiring them to respond to an annual questionnaire and attending a best practices forum.
