HANOVER, Md., Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Aerotek, a leading provider of recruiting and staffing services, announced today it was named a 2018 Military Friendly® Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs. The award recognizes companies for how well their military recruiting program does in three primary areas: recruiting, hiring and training of former military service members. Aerotek received the silver award in addition to earning the 2018 Military Friendly® Employer designation.
Aerotek provides military service members and their spouses with opportunities for civilian jobs through contract, contract-to-hire and direct-placement options. In addition, Aerotek offers support and guidance on how former military service members should best leverage their military training and expertise during the job search and interview process to help them reach their career goals.
"At Aerotek, we partner with veterans to help leverage their skills and experiences to find the right position and company for them," said Dave Majerowicz, Aerotek director of Government Services and chair of its Military Council. "We are committed to helping our nation's service members, and we are honored to be recognized as one of the top Military Friendly® Employers."
"Companies that have earned this designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses," said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer at Victory Media. "Our Military Friendly® Employers have moved beyond answering 'why hire military?' They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers."
Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies; personal opinion data from veteran employees; and proprietary Military Friendly® survey data from participating organizations. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization's survey score with an assessment of the organization's ability to meet thresholds for applicant, new hire retention, employee turnover, and promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.
