APi Group Named a 2018 Military Friendly® Employer

News
December 8, 2017 -

APi Group recently announced that it has earned the 2018 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media. First published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. 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.

"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."

Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies; personal opinion data from veteran employees; and proprietary Military Friendly® survey data from participating organizations. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2018 Military Friendly® Companies survey.

Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media 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.

"Companies that have earned this designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses," said Daniel Nichols, 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 will be showcased along with other 2018 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2018 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
