September 4, 2019 | HANOVER, MD
TEKsystems ranked fifth among more than 290 companies for its dedication to placing veterans and military spouses in high-value careers.
TEKsystems, a provider of full-stack technology services that addresses the pressing strategy, implementation and talent needs for more than 80% of the Fortune 500, today announced its recognition as a 2020 Military Friendly® Employer by VIQTORY, a publisher of G.I. Jobs®, Military Spouse and Military Friendly® magazines. TEKsystems was ranked fifth among more than 290 companies for its dedication to placing veterans and military spouses in high-value careers. This is the fifth consecutive year the company has earned a military friendly distinction.
The annual Military Friendly® list uses survey data to identify organizations whose commitment to serving the military and veteran community is comprehensive in scope and meaningful in terms of actual outcomes and impact.
“Those with military backgrounds know what it means to serve others. And the skills gained in their service—which include resilience, organization and grit—are exactly the kind of qualities we look for and value at TEKsystems,” says Mike Powers, the veterans and disabilities program lead for TEKsystems and a former Army National Guard member. “We’re deeply thankful for our veterans’ service, and it’s our pleasure to partner with them in the next phase of their careers.”
Since 2013, TEKsystems has helped more than 15,000 servicemen and servicewomen with their career aspirations in a wide variety of fields, including the leadership of its company. In addition to offering a broad range of career development, training, transition and mentor programs to support military communities, TEKsystems also partners with a number of veteran-related organizations, including the Wounded Warrior Project, VetsinTech, Microsoft Software and Systems Academy and the Pat Tillman Foundation.
TEKsystems earned the Military Friendly® Employer distinction by completing a data-driven survey independently verified by professional services firm EY. Ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to exceed standards for hiring and onboarding, opportunity and advancement, culture and commitment, support and retention, policies and compliance, and recruiting and sourcing.
