COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Dec. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vectrus, Inc. (NYSE: VEC) announced today that it has been recognized as a 2019 Military Friendly® Employer. The list of Military Friendly® Employers distinguishes elite companies that promote strong job opportunities, hiring practices and retention programs for transitioning service members seeking civilian employment.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2019 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY 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 and Advancement of veterans and military employees.
"Vectrus is proud to once again earn the designation of Military Friendly® employer," said Frank Peloso, senior vice president and chief human resources officer of Vectrus.
