The Annual Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list is developed from an estimated 5,000 companies
AlliedBarton Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, announced recently that it is named a 2014 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer by G.I. Jobs magazine. To help promote the release of the list, Jerold Ramos, Director of Strategic Recruiting and Military Liaison for AlliedBarton, is participating in the November 11, NASDAQ Closing Bell Ceremony in New York City. He and other Military Friendly Employer representatives will take part in the event with Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs.
"AlliedBarton is proud to be honoured with this recognition for the third consecutive year," said Ramos. "For businesses to be successful with military hiring, their efforts need to be intentional and include a sustained effort, and initiatives need support and involvement from senior leaders. Not only is it the right thing to do, but military personnel represent a large untapped talent pool, which is beneficial in all industries."
Year to date, AlliedBarton has hired more than 4,100 veterans, reservists, their family members and caregivers.
The annual Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list is developed from an estimated 5,000 companies. Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
"The 2014 Military Friendly Employers represent the preeminent tier of companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment," said Sean Collins, Vice President for Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. "Our Military Friendly Employers constitute the group of companies actually moving the needle and hiring from the military community. The 2014 Military Friendly Employers reported hiring over 117,000 service members and spouses over the last 12 months, representing an average of 14 percent of total new hires."
Now in its 11th year, Military Friendly Employers media is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. Each year companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Advisory Board consisting of leaders in the military recruitment community.
