Jobs Magazine. Companies which earn this honor have committed themselves to recruiting and hiring veterans for jobs that utilize the leadership qualities, technical skills and field experience they earned throughout their military service. Criteria for the recognition include a company's long-term commitment to recruiting and hiring former military as well as hiring efforts and results, policies for Reserve/Guard members called to active duty, the presence of special recruitment programs and retention rates.
"We have instilled a passion at Aviall for celebrating those who have served our country," Ed Dolanksi, president and CEO of Aviall, said. "We are humbled to receive this honor for our focus on recruiting, hiring and supporting veterans. These activities are not about earning accolades.
