KALAMAZOO, MI (September 10, 2020) — Aldevra LLC has earned the 2021 Military Friendly® Employer and will be added to the list of 240 employers earning this prestigious designation. Employers on the 2021 Military Friendly® Employers List set the standard for organizations to provide the best opportunities for veterans and military spouses.
“Companies that have earned this designation have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance veterans within their organizations,” said Josh Rosen, Director of Military Friendly ®. “To them, hiring veterans isn’t just the right thing to do. It’s good for business.”
Institutions 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.
“As a United States Marine Corps veteran myself, it is an honor to receive this designation that recognizes our focus and efforts to hire my fellow veterans. Thank you to all of the veterans, members of the National Guard, and military spouses and families that contribute to our team,” says Rodney Marshall, president and CEO of Aldevra.
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.
Aldevra will be showcased along with other 2021 Military Friendly ® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com. Check out Aldevra’s Military Friendly profile detailing program initiatives: https://www.militaryfriendly.com/is-aldevra-military-friendly/
