Transdev Named to 2016 Military Friendly Employer List
Transdev has earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer designation from Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse magazines. Transdev has earned this Employer award in recognition of its recruiting, and hiring programs focused on the military, its track record of translating military skills into civilian jobs, and its results in helping veterans build careers.
“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.” Transdev 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.
Companies compete 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. 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.
“Transdev is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting from the military community is not only the ‘right thing to do,’ but it makes good business sense,” says Suzanne Baugher, Director of Talent Acquisition for Transdev. “We are very honored to receive this recognition.”
Now in its 13th year, Military Friendly® Employers is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment.
