10 best companies for veterans
Around 225,000 service members leave the military every year, according to data from the Department of Labor and the Department of Defense. This presents a great opportunity to employers looking to attract retain disciplined and resilient talent, says Scott Gutz, CEO of the job search engine Monster.
Employers who cater their benefits and company culture to welcome veterans are well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity, Gutz says.
“There is no debate about the value those who have served bring to our economy and civilian workforce,” Gutz says. “All of the companies highlighted on this year’s list recognize and celebrate that value. We hope that this will continue to inspire and motivate other employers to follow in their footsteps with veteran-focused programs and innovative initiatives, strengthening their companies with veteran talent.”
In honor of Veterans Day, Monster partnered with Military.com to recognize the best employers for military talent. Rankings are based on nominations by veteran hiring experts. Employer-reported data on veteran employees and new hires was also taken into account.
