Military Friendly® Companies are “All In”!

What does it mean to be a Military Friendly® Company?

It may mean different things to different people, but to us it means total commitment—total commitment to tapping into military talent, whether as employees, students, suppliers, consumers or like-minded people with like-minded missions. And, having the right people, programs and policies in place to make it happen.

We are pleased to introduce the Military Friendly® Company designation for organizations that have met or exceeded our standard in at least three out of four critical areas of commitment to the military community:

  • Recruiting, hiring and training of veterans (Military Friendly® Employers)
  • Recruiting, hiring and training of military spouses (Military Spouse Friendly® Employers)
  • Partnering with and supporting Veteran-Owned Businesses (Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Programs)
  • Commitment to military consumer protections and having a positive brand reputation in the military community (Military Friendly® Brands)

Here are a few important facts to know about the Military Friendly® Companies ratings criteria:

  • A Military Friendly® designation is calculated for each of the individual survey components.
  • Any company earning three or more individual Military Friendly® designations is considered a Military Friendly® Company.
  • Once all Military Friendly® Company designations are calculated, the companies are ranked by total score received throughout all four survey components.
  • A Military Friendly designation is based solely on the input survey results.  Advertising or sponsorship relationship has no baring on the designation status.
