Aldevra Earns 2022 Military Friendly ® Employer Designation
KALAMAZOO (Nov 11th, 2021) — Aldevra announced 11/11/2021 that it has earned the 2022 Military Friendly ® Employer designation.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly ® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over a thousand companies participated in the 2022 Military Friendly ® survey.
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 & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“IT’S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT BEING A MILITARY-FRIENDLY EMPLOYER IS MORE THAN HIRING VETERANS,” SAYS RODNEY MARSHAL, ALDEVRA PRESIDENT AND CEO. “IT’S A COLLECTIVE EFFORT BY OUR ENTIRE TEAM TO SUPPORT VETERANS AND COVER DOWN FOR ACTIVE DUTY GUARD PERSONNEL. WE’RE CREATING A TEAM ENVIRONMENT WHERE WE ALL LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER.”
“COMPANIES EARNING THE MILITARY FRIENDLY EMPLOYERS ® DESIGNATION CREATE AND ELEVATE THE STANDARD FOR MILITARY PROGRAMS ACROSS THE GLOBE, THEY HAVE INVESTED IN SUBSTANTIVE PROGRAMS TO RECRUIT, RETAIN AND ADVANCE THE VETERANS AND SERVICE MEMBERS WITHIN THEIR ORGANIZATIONS,” SAID KAYLA LOPEZ, DIRECTOR OF MILITARY PARTNERSHIPS, MILITARY FRIENDLY ®. “TO THEM, HIRING VETERANS AND SERVICE MEMBERS IS MORE THAN JUST THE RIGHT THING TO DO, IT MAKES GOOD BUSINESS SENSE.
Aldevra will be showcased along with other 2022 Military Friendly ® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com .
