CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - AlliedBarton Security Services,, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, was named a 2015 Military Friendly Spouse Employer® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse magazines.

This award places organizations in an elite group, the top 2%, of eligible employers 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 fourth consecutive year, AlliedBarton was recognized for its forward-looking practices that support the employment needs of the 1.1 million military spouses -- the forces behind the force. AlliedBarton will be showcased along with other 2015 Military Friendly® Employers in the January 2015 issue of Military Spouse Magazine.

"Hiring military is an important initiative for our organization, and our company-wide military hiring program, Hire Our Heroes(SM), has been very successful," said Jerold Ramos, AlliedBarton Director of Strategic Recruiting and Military Liaison. "In our opinion, these heroes include not only the brave men and women who serve our nation, but also their supportive spouses who also bring many valuable talents and abilities to the security industry."

Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a data-driven survey, with data independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media and its Advisory Board. Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies, such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

Now in its 12th year, Military Friendly® Employers 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 2015 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs magazine and Victory Media.
