APi Group Inc. Named to 2017 Military Friendly® Employers List
November 21, 2016
APi Group recently earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation awarded by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM Jobs, and Military Spouse. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best career opportunities available as they transition from military service.
APi Group is recognized as having a strong commitment to veteran recruiting and hiring, providing veterans and their spouses an opportunity to work with a company that honors their military service and invests in their future.
"Hiring veterans and their spouses, as well as their individual well-being, remains a priority for APi Group and our companies," said Russ Becker, APi Group president and CEO. "These men and women have given us much to support our freedom. It is our privilege to help them achieve success as civilians when they depart the armed services."
More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2017 Military Friendly® Companies survey. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization's survey score with an assessment of the organization's ability to meet thresholds for applicants, new hire retention, employee turnover, and promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.
"Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses," said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media. "Our Military Friendly® Employers have moved beyond answering 'why hire military?' They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers."
APi Group is showcased online at http://militaryfriendly.com/employers/ along with other respected 2017 Military Friendly® Employers, and will be highlighted in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse Magazine.
About Military Friendly® Employers:
The Military Friendly® Employers list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal contractors nationwide, input of military employees, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Employers survey from participating companies. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weightings were developed by Victory Media with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by EY. The survey is administered for free and is open to companies that have hired veterans in the past 12 months. Criteria for consideration can be found at: https://militaryfriendly.com.
