Windstream again named a Top 10 Military Friendly® Company

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--()--Windstream, a privately held communications and software company, has been named a Top 10 Military Friendly® Company for the second consecutive year. The company ranked fifth on the 2023 list, up from ninth last year.

We are thrilled to move up the Top 10 Military Friendly® Company list as we continue our focused efforts to hire and retain veterans,” said Mary Michaels, chief human resources officer at Windstream. “Windstream has a strong diversity and inclusion program, and recruiting and retaining military veterans is a key component of that effort.”

Windstream appears on the list of companies with annual revenues of $5 billion or more.

Organizations that made the list met or exceeded the standard in at least three out of four critical areas of commitment to the military community:

  • Recruiting, hiring and training of veterans (Military Friendly® Employers)
  • Recruiting, hiring and training of military spouses (Military Spouse Friendly Employers®)
  • Partnering with and supporting Veteran-Owned Businesses (Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Programs)
  • Commitment to military consumer protections and having a positive brand reputation in the military community (Military Friendly® Brands)

Windstream was proud to again be recognized in all four of these areas,” Michaels said. “Veterans and their spouses are key to our ability to care for our customers and deliver essential communications services.”
