COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vectrus, Inc. (NYSE: VEC) announced today that it has been recognized as a 2021 Military Friendly® Employer by VIQTORY. This is Vectrus' seventh year on the list and more than 35 percent of the company's workforce reports a military background. Since 2003, the list has come to set the standard for organizations to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses.
"At Vectrus, recruiting and sourcing transitioning veterans through the Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program and other avenues is a top priority as it helps to diversify our workforce and support our clients' missions," said Frank Peloso, Vectrus senior vice president and chief human resources officer. "We are pleased to be, once again, recognized and named to this prestigious list as a desired employer for our veterans and their spouses."
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY 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 and Advancement of veterans and military employees.
Organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Hundreds of companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2021 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
Vectrus will be showcased along with other 2021 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
