A unique aspect of the Military Friendly® program is its extension across four pillars: veteran employment, military spouse employment, military consumer services and protections, and veteran-owned business supplier programs.

The Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity list identifies 91 companies that demonstrate their commitment to the veteran community by the extent to which they include veteran-owned businesses in their supplier diversity programs. These corporations are eager to do business with vetrepreneurs because it’s good for the own bottom line. 

If you’re looking for corporations to partner with, the Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity list is a great place to start.

The Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Program list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 employers nationwide, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Companies survey from participating companies.

The survey questions, methodology, criteria, and weighting were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm. Ernst & Young, a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction, and advisory services, independently evaluated the scoring methodology used for the Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Program list using the criteria set forth by VIQTORY. The services performed by EY are limited to advisory procedures and do not provide assurance over the scoring methodology. The survey is administered for free and is open to all employers that wish to participate.
