Safelite AutoGlass® 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, the list of Military Friendly Employers is provided annually to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.
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. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“At Safelite, we value not only what our service men and women have done, but what they have potential to do,” said Natalie Crede, Safelite senior vice president of People, Leadership & Development. “Military veterans bring highly transferrable skills, leadership qualities and are an excellent source for the integrity, commitment and service mindset we look for in our people. Frankly, we’re honored when a military veteran applies for a position with us.”
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?’” he said. “They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly Employer to translate military competencies into civilian careers.”
