RESTON, Va., Jan. 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vectrus, Inc. (NYSE:VEC) recently earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse.
“As a government service provider with a large customer base embedded in the Defense Department, we are honored to be selected as a top military friendly employer,” said Ken Hunzeker, CEO & president of Vectrus. “We recognize the value of military veterans and their knowledge of our customers, and we share and embrace their desire to give back to our service members in the toughest and most challenging environments in the world.”
Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a data-driven survey, with data independently tested by Ernst & Young. Now in its 13th year, Military Friendly® Employers 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 higher education and military recruitment communities. A full list of board members can be found at www.MilitaryFriendly.com/advisory-board.
“Companies that have earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer award have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful careers for transitioning service members,” said Daniel Nichols, chief product officer of Victory Media and a Navy Reserve veteran. “Our Military Friendly® Employers are moving the needle beyond answering ‘why hire military’—they are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts to translate military competencies into civilian jobs.”
