Nov. 10, 2023 | HANOVER, MD
Achievement stems from commitment to serving military service members, veterans and spouses through employment and career advancement.
(HANOVER, Md., Nov. 10, 2023) – TEKsystems, a global provider of technology, business and talent solutions for more than 80% of the Fortune 500, announced today their recognition as a 2024 Top Ten Military Friendly® Employer by VIQTORY.
TEKsystems is committed to helping those in the military community achieve their career aspirations. Over the past 10 years, TEKsystems has expanded the talent pipelines of many organizations, including their own, helping more than 19,000 military service members, veterans and spouses find opportunities for career success in a wide variety of fields.
Since 2003, the Military Friendly® lists have come to set the standard for organizations that are committed to creating sustainable economic benefit to the military community by attracting, retaining, supporting and engaging veterans, active military and their spouses.
“Military service members, veterans and spouses have unique experiences and tremendous resolve that translate into competitive differentiators for their employers, bringing in-demand skills, leadership and resilience into the workforce,” said Franklin Reed, executive director of global inclusion, diversity and equity at TEKsystems. “Considering the millions of veterans seeking employment, there remains an untapped market of dedicated individuals ready and willing to work. Because we know the in-demand skill sets our customers need and we understand each individual’s experience and ambitions, we’re well-positioned to serve as the military community’s partner in career success.”
Each year, TEKsystems helps over 3,000 veterans, active military and their spouses secure careers in technology, recruitment, sales, human resources and business across the country. As a Department of Defense-authorized SkillBridge employer, TEKsystems offers SkillBridge recruitment and account management opportunities in more than 80 locations. Additionally, to help with the transition from military life, TEKsystems offers a broad range of career development, training and mentor programs. Understanding that career transformation is an ongoing ambition, TEKsystems partners with several veteran-related organizations and programs, including 50strong, ACAP, CSP, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Military Spouse Employment Partnership, Pat Tillman Foundation, USO, Veterati, and the Wounded Warrior Program.
“Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employers designation have wholeheartedly invested in comprehensive and impactful initiatives that bring about positive, life-changing results for our valued service members, dedicated military spouses and esteemed veterans within their ranks,” stated Kayla Lopez, senior director of military partnerships at Military Friendly®. “We salute these exemplary employers who raise the bar and understand that hiring military personnel is not merely an act of goodwill but a testament to a standard that truly embodies sound business wisdom. Their steadfast commitment to integrating military personnel into their workforce not only reflects their compassion but also underscores their business acumen.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. 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 combing 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.
TEKsystems will be showcased along with other 2024 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
