Veterans make great employees, and the Military Friendly® Employers list by Victory Media helps veterans and companies find their match.
By ranking businesses on their ability to recruit and retain veterans, the Military Friendly® list seeks to provide a tool for individuals leaving the service to make informed decisions about post-military opportunities.
“There are Fortune 1000 companies tripping over themselves to hire veterans, and about 400,000 returning service members every year,” says Sean Collins, a nine-year Navy veteran and current vice president of product for Victory Media. “We’re affecting some of the biggest companies out there who are changing their habits to be more in line with our assessment tool,” says Mr. Collins, citing a 9 percent increase in military new hires among Military Friendly employers as a demonstration of the list’s influence.
Military Friendly® also issues annual rankings and ratings of franchises, cities, employers of military spouses and colleges.
