Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly Employer ® title via a data-driven survey of over 5,000 companies independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP. Criteria included a benchmark score across key programs and policies such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
Performance Contractors Inc. aggressively seeks to hire military talent and has found that hiring from the military community is a strategic competitive advantage. “Employing veterans, current National Guard and Reserve is a great match for us,” reports David Theriot, director of Military Workforce Development for Performance. “We value the skills and qualities developed through military training and experiences, and realize what an asset they are to our team” Theriot added.
