Miller-Valentine Group announced today that it has earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer and Military Spouse Friendly Employer® designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. Miller-Valentine Group currently has 45 Associates who are either military members or veterans. This is the third year Miller-Valentine Group has received this designation. Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a data-driven survey, with data independently tested by EY (Ernst & Young) based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media and its Advisory Board.
Miller-Valentine Group is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting from the military community can lead to a strategic competitive advantage. According to Bill Krul, CEO, “Veterans are well versed in achieving goals and the value of teamwork. This skill set fits perfectly with our corporate culture.” Krul continues, “It is our privilege to work with those who have made service to our country a priority.”
Now in its 13th year, Military Friendly® Employers is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment.
“Companies that have earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer award have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful careers for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and Navy Reserve veteran. “Our Military Friendly® Employers are moving the needle beyond answering ‘why hire military’—they are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® educators to translate military competencies into civilian jobs.”
Miller-Valentine Group will be showcased along with other 2016 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and the January 2016 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, as well as on MilitaryFriendly.com.
