TEKsystems Honored as Leading Military Friendly® Employer for Seventh Consecutive Year
Nov. 11, 2021 | HANOVER, MD
Recognition reflects long-standing commitment to creating opportunities for military members, their families
TEKsystems, a global provider of technology, business and talent solutions for more than 80% of the Fortune 500, today announced its recognition as a 2022 Military Friendly® Employer by VIQTORY. Since 2003, the Military Friendly® lists have come to set the standard for organizations that provide the best opportunities for veterans and military spouses.
TEKsystems ranked third in the top 10 of the company’s respective revenue category out of more than 1,000 companies that participated in the survey. This is the seventh consecutive year the company has earned the Military Friendly® distinction. TEKsystems’ ranking speaks to an ongoing commitment to fostering an inclusive environment, including creating sustainable and meaningful benefits for the military community.
“At TEKsystems, we’re committed to not only hiring veterans and their spouses, but also helping our customers hire these exceptional individuals,” said Mike Powers, the veterans and disabilities program lead for TEKsystems and a former Army National Guard member. “Veterans understand what it means to serve others, and they bring essential skills like resilience, organization, time management and grit, with an inherent ability to adapt to change. We’re extremely thankful for their service and take great pride in our recognition as a longtime Military Friendly® employer.”
Each year, TEKsystems helps thousands of active military, veterans and spouses in the military community achieve their career aspirations in a broad array of fields. Since 2013, the company has helped more than 19,000 individuals find rewarding careers with purpose. In addition to offering a broad range of career development, training, transition and mentor programs to support the military community, TEKsystems also partners with a number of veteran-related organizations, including SkillBridge, the Army Career and Alumni Program, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Military Spouse Employment Partnership, USO, 50strong, Wounded Warrior Project and the Pat Tillman Foundation.
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers® designation create and elevate the standard for military programs across the globe; they have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance the veterans and service members within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, director of military partnerships, Military Friendly®. “To them, hiring veterans and servicemembers is more than just the right thing to do—it makes good business sense.”
TEKsystems earned the Military Friendly® Employer distinction by completing an independently verified, data-driven survey. Public data sources were also considered. 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 and advancement of veterans and military employees.
TEKsystems will be showcased along with other 2022 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
