HANOVER, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced it has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer distinction by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM and Military Spouse magazines. Companies that are recognized as Military Friendly Employers are committed to programs and policies aimed at hiring military talent.
TEKsystems earned the Military Friendly Employer distinction by completing a data-driven survey independently verified by professional services firm, Ernst & Young. 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.
“Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly Employer designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and 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.”
“Veterans have long found success at TEKsystems,” says TEKsystems Veterans and Disabilities Outreach Program Coordinator and Army National Guard member, Mike Powers. “To thrive at our company, employees are encouraged to build strong relationships, demonstrate a commitment to excellence, communicate effectively and serve teammates, clients and consultants. The leadership and mindset that a military background provides continues to be an asset at our company. We are proud to have impacted the careers of more than 3,000 veterans, active guard and reserve members in the past year alone. I have worked at TEKsystems for over 18 years and am a proud member of the National Guard—I can’t imagine being able to do that as successfully as I have at any other company.”
Each year, the list of Military Friendly Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.
