Kalamazoo, MI (Nov 10th, 2023) — Aldevra has earned the 2024 Military Friendly® Employer Gold designation. Military Friendly® is the standard that measures an organization’s commitment, effort, and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefits for the military community. Companies earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over twelve hundred companies participated in the 2024 Military Friendly® survey and 338 were selected.
“One third of Aldevra’s employees are veterans. We actively encourage veterans, military spouses and those serving in the Guard to apply for positions with our company,” says Rodney Marshall, Aldevra president and CEO. “We are veteran owned and our primary customers are those serving and those who served. It only makes sense that we create an environment that respects the military community and allows service to continue.”
“Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employers designation have wholeheartedly invested in comprehensive and impactful initiatives that bring about positive, life-changing results for our valued service members, dedicated military spouses, and esteemed veterans within their ranks. We salute these exemplary employers who raise the bar and understand that hiring military personnel is not merely an act of goodwill but a testament to a standard that truly embodies sound business wisdom. Their steadfast commitment to integrating military personnel into their workforce not only reflects their compassion but also underscores their business acumen,” – Kayla Lopez, Senior Director of Military Partnerships at Military Friendly®.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the 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 Recruitment, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
Aldevra will be showcased in the 2024 Military Friendly ® Employers in the Winter issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com. For more information about Aldevra, please visit aldevra.com.
