Aerotek® Inc., a leading provider of recruiting and staffing services, today announced that it was named a 2014 Military Friendly Employer® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse. Aerotek’s selection marks the third consecutive year it has been included on the list. The award recognizes corporations that have made a significant commitment to hiring former military, and it is determined by assessing each company’s recruiting and hiring efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and policies for National Guard and Reserve members called to active duty.
Aerotek provides veterans and their spouses opportunities for civilian jobs through contract, contract-to-hire and direct placement options. Aerotek also supports military service members by providing guidance on how to best utilize their military training and expertise during the job search and interview process.
“Many organizations seek and value the unique skills that veterans bring to the civilian workforce. At Aerotek, we partner with veterans to help them leverage their experiences to find the right company in need of their skills,” said Shelton Guinn, executive director of human resources. “We greatly value the contributions of the men and women who have served our country, and we are proud to once again be recognized as one of the top Military Friendly Employers.”
“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. “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.”
Based on a survey sample of 5,000 companies, the Military Friendly Employers® list is developed with the assistance of an Advisory Board made up of leaders in the military recruitment community and independently tested by an external organization.
