Lincoln, NE (May 3, 2013) â€“ CivilianJobs.com, where America's military connects with civilian careers, announced the 2013 Most Valuable Employers
(MVE) for Military today. The MVE recognition serves to help military-experienced job seekers and veterans identify the top employers to target for civilian careers.
â€œWeâ€™re very excited to win this prestigious award for the second year in a row. Being recognized as a most valuable employer by an organization that serves military members is a terrific honor for all of us at Crete Carrier Corporation," says Tonn Ostergard, President and CEO at Crete Carrier Corporation. "Crete Carrier has long supported our nationâ€™s military veterans with almost 30 percent of our employees having prior military experience. We have gained valuable associates whose experience and core competencies directly align with our business. The cornerstone of our success is our employee training programs, which are designed to train and transition military individuals into a profession that will allow them to have a successful career and provide for their families."
â€œThe sentiment to hire veterans is at a high in our country and the largest group of MVEs for Military to date reflects that fact,â€ said Sandra (Sandy) Morris, CEO, Bradley-Morris, Inc., parent company of CivilianJobs.com. â€œBut military job seekers still need to know where to look. In keeping with CivilianJobs.comâ€™s mission to connect Americaâ€™s military with civilian careers, we hope that The Most Valuable Employers for Military recognition will help shorten the distance between veterans and jobs.â€
The 2013 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military was open to all U.S.-based companies. The winners were selected based on surveys in which employers outlined their recruiting, training and retention plans that best serve military service members and veterans. In addition to being recognized in the May issue of Military Transition News, CivilianJobs.com's worldwide military base newspaper, winning employers will also be displayed on the CivilianJobs.com website.
