CHICAGO, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PeopleScout announced today that it has been named a 2020 Military Friendly® Employer. This is the sixth consecutive year PeopleScout received the honor.
Organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 290 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2020 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
"We are incredibly grateful for the sacrifices made by all of our veterans," said PeopleScout President Taryn Owen. "PeopleScout has a long-standing commitment to supporting veterans as they transition back into the civilian world. We are inspired to find and deliver the best talent and know that when we help a service member find a job, we are doing just that."
PeopleScout is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the "right thing to do," but the right thing for businesses. PeopleScout launched the Veteran Talent Exchange on Veterans Day 2013, which connects thousands of veterans every year to top employers nationwide.
PeopleScout's parent company, TrueBlue, was a founding member of the national advisory circle on the Veteran Employment Advisory Council, which was created in 2011. The VEAC is committed to hiring veterans and military spouses, establishing best practices for veteran employment and working with other businesses to do the same. TrueBlue is also a proud supporter of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) initiative. As a Friend of HOH, TrueBlue connects service members, veterans and military spouses with career opportunities at TrueBlue and its clients.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY, a service disabled, veteran owned small business (SDVOSB) that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities, with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. 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 & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
PeopleScout will be showcased along with other 2020 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2020 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
