Victory Media, the ratings organization and publisher of Military Friendly® Employers and Military Friendly® Schools ratings, released its 2017 Military Spouse Friendly Employers® here:
The annual list recognizes those companies that hire spouses of active duty servicemembers and promote workforce development policies that acknowledge the unique challenges of military life and skills learned through those challenges. This year’s list features the top companies in the $1 Billion – $500 Million, Less Than $500 Million, and Nonprofit categories, demonstrating the growing business need and success in employing this group of talented men and women.
More than ever before companies are recruiting from this trusted and valuable workforce…Military spouses are expert multi-taskers. They thrive under pressure, and are highly educated and mobile. Companies recognize these attributes and want them in their workplace. ~Military Spouse team
The annual Military Friendly® survey is open each year to companies with $100MM or more in annual revenue, with the Military Friendly® ratings distinguishing those best for veterans and servicemembers transitioning out of the military. A portion of the survey considers specific recruiting and retention practices and policies for military spouses, addressing some of the biggest concerns of military families:
- Which companies provide time off for spouses when their service member is deployed?
- Which companies offer flexibility for spouses who are managing the nuances of military life?
- Which companies work to keep spouses employed when they inevitably have to relocate?
