U.S. Security Associates is Ranked a Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer
ATLANTA, Nov. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Security Associates has been selected as a G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military Friendly Employer for 2013.
G.I. Jobs is a monthly publication that provides a wealth of resources for enlisted personnel transitioning to the civilian workforce. The magazine includes resume and interview tips, information on continuing education and military friendly schools, job opportunities, and inspiring profiles of veterans who have successfully transitioned from the military to corporate America. G.I. Jobs is the go-to career guide for planning life after the military.
Each year, G.I Jobs identifies the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® out of a pool of approximately 5,000 eligible companies. Only 2 percent rank in the Top 100, based on a categorical evaluation of each company's long-term commitment to employing veterans. The evaluation categories that carry the most weight are assets dedicated to hiring from the military, the percentage of new veteran hires, and reserve/guard policies. G.I. Jobs confirms the integrity of the list before publication through a comprehensive audit by Ernst & Young.
U.S. Security Associates is proud to take its place among the enterprises in Corporate America that are setting new benchmarks for military friendly employment practices.
CEO Chuck Schneider, a formal naval officer, has mandated that every U.S. Security Associates office actively and deliberately recruit men and women who have served in the armed forces. "Hiring military is personal for me, but it's also good business." Schneider observed. "Former military personnel transition very successfully into our culture. They have the skill sets and work ethic to persevere and thrive with us, and that makes them a hot commodity in an industry where employee stability is a major cost driver."
U.S. Security Associates is reaching out to the veteran community through partnerships with military employment groups like Warriors to Work, Employee Partnership of the Armed Forces, Recruit Military, ESGR and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce "Hiring Our Heroes." Company recruiters are also exhibiting at veteran job fairs to build awareness of U.S. Security Associates as a military friendly employer.
The G.I. Jobs Top 100 List was announced November 9 on board the USS Yorktown at this year's Carrier Classic College basketball event. The list also featured as the cover story in the December 2012 issue of G.I. Jobs, which hit newsstands just before Veterans Day.
