For the seventh consecutive year, DynCorp International has been recognized as a Military Friendly Employer® list by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse. This year DI ranked 18th.
“Service members are an essential part of the DI team,” said Steve Gaffney, DynCorp International chairman and chief executive officer. “Not only is their experience and knowledge of our customers an important asset to our business, but they also embrace and help promote our values-based culture.”
This year’s selection process was the most competitive yet, with a record number of companies competing for this elite title. Companies competed for the Military Friendly Employer ® title via a data-driven survey of more than 5,000 companies with data independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
“The 2014 Military Friendly Employers® represent the preeminent tier of companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment,” said Sean Collins, vice president for Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “Our Military Friendly Employers® constitute the group of companies actually moving the needle and hiring from the military community.”
Now in it’s 11th year, Military Friendly Employers® media is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. Each year companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an advisory board consisting of leaders in the military recruitment community.
