Hanover, Md. – November 5, 2015 – TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced it has earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer distinction by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse magazines. Companies that are recognized as Military Friendly Employers are committed to programs and policies aimed at hiring military talent.
TEKsystems earned the distinction as a Military Friendly Employer by completing a data-driven survey independently verified by professional services firm, Ernst & Young. Example criteria for the survey include a benchmark score across key areas, such as strength of company military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
“TEKsystems is dedicated to helping veterans transition to successful civilian careers, and to supporting guard and reserve members' military and professional lives,” says TEKsystems Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Michelle Webb. “We appreciate the values and skill sets that the military community brings to the workplace. In our experience working with veterans, we see time and time again that they benefit our teams, our clients and consultants, and our organization as a whole.”
“Veterans have long found success at TEKsystems,” says TEKsystems Veterans and Disabilities Outreach Program Coordinator and Army National Guard member, Mike Powers. “To thrive at our company, employees are encouraged to build strong relationships, demonstrate a commitment to excellence, communicate effectively and serve teammates, clients and consultants. The leadership and mindset that a military background provides has always been an asset at our company. We are proud to have impacted the careers of more than 3,000 veterans, active guard and reserve members in the past year alone. I have worked at TEKsystems for over 18 years and am a member of the active reserve—I can’t imagine being able to do that as successfully as I have at any other company.”
