CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) announced today that it has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM, and Military Spouse. First published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. 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.
Cintas 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 business. “We’re proud to be recognized as a Military Friendly Employer for the 12th consecutive year. Our internal military program dates back to the early 90s when Cintas founder, Dick Farmer (a US Marine Veteran), ordered the creation of a program that sourced talent from the ranks of the Armed Forces,” said Matt Disher, Cintas Military Recruiting Program Manager and Marine Veteran. “Today, we’ve expanded these recruitment programs to include post-hire development and mentorship among other things, but the value of utilizing military-experienced men and women is still as important as it was decades ago when the program started.”
“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.”
Cintas will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on https://militaryfriendly.com/
Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2017 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
