CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2013) - AlliedBarton Security Services, www.alliedbarton.com, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, was named a 2014 Military Friendly Spouse Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.
This award recognizes companies that hire spouses of active duty service members and make an effort to develop workforce policies that acknowledge the unique challenges of military life. For the third consecutive year, AlliedBarton was recognized for its forward-looking practices that support the employment needs of military spouses.
"The spouses, families and caregivers of our service men and women make sacrifices each day to support our country and the ones they love, and they too need meaningful career opportunities," said Jerold Ramos, AlliedBarton Director of Strategic Recruiting and Military Liaison. "Spouses possess desirable skills that are essential in today's workplaces, including adaptability, dedication and hard work, and have had culturally diverse experiences."
Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly Employer® title via a data-driven survey of over 5,000 companies with resulting survey data independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Criteria for the survey 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.
Now in its 11th year, Military Friendly Employers, www.militaryfriendly.com, is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. Each year, companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an advisory board consisting of leaders in the military recruitment community.
AlliedBarton was also named a 2014 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs magazine and Victory Media.
