Miller-Valentine Group Named to Victory Media’s 2017 Military Friendly® Employers List

Miller-Valentine Group announced today that it has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM Jobs SM, and Military Spouse. First published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available. Miller-Valentine Group has received this award every year since 2013, and currently employs 69 Associates who have served in the military, through direct service or as a military spouse.

“Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans, and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media. “Our Military Friendly® Employers have moved beyond answering ‘why hire military?’ They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers.”

Miller-Valentine Group is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting from the military community can lead to a strategic competitive advantage.  According to Bill Krul, CEO, “Veterans are well versed in achieving goals and the value of teamwork.  This skill set fits perfectly with our corporate culture.”  Krul continues, “It is our privilege to work with those who have made service to our country a priority.”

Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2017 Military Friendly® Companies survey. Ratings methodology, criteria and weightings were determined by Victory Media 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 & Advancement of veterans and military employees.

Miller-Valentine Group will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
