MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the seventh consecutive year, Ameriprise Financial (NYSE: AMP) was named a Military-Friendly® Employer by VIQTORY, a company that connects the military community to civilian employment and educational opportunities. The 2021 list recognizes companies that provide the best job prospects and support for veterans and their families through their culture and veterans programs.
“At Ameriprise, we’re proud of our colleagues who’ve nobly served our country in the military, and we’re grateful for the unique strengths and perspectives they bring to our workplace,” said Kelli Hunter Petruzillo, executive vice president, Human Resources at Ameriprise. “We’re committed to being a supportive employer where people of all backgrounds are valued and can succeed and develop in their careers.”
Through its Veterans Employee Network – one of 13 business resource networks offered by the company – Ameriprise provides a forum for employees to increase the understanding of military service members, while enhancing professional skills and maximizing contributions to the firm and the community.
“As a veteran I am proud of the efforts Ameriprise makes to support their employees through the Veterans Employee Network and I am glad to have the opportunity to be a part of it,” said Jeff Phillips, executive chair for Veterans Employee Network and vice president of Strategy and Business Development.
Organizations earning the Military-Friendly Employer designation from VIQTORY were evaluated using both public and government data sources as well as survey information from participating employers. Companies are assessed on factors including new hire retention, employee turnover, and advancement of veterans and military employees.
Ameriprise is among 240 employers that were named to the 2021 Military Friendly Employers list, which will be published in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and can also be found at militaryfriendly.com.
