For the second year in a row, DynCorp International has been recognized as a top veteran employer. The list – Military Times EDGE magazine’s 2013 list of “Best for Vets” employers – shows DI as the company with the most veteran executives, with 63 percent.
“Year after year, veterans help make our company better,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and chief executive officer of DynCorp International. “Their experiences translate into a special appreciation for the challenges our customers face, and their positive leadership attributes help our teams outperform and exceed customer expectations.”
Military Times EDGE invited businesses across the country to participate in a rigorous, 70-question survey on recruiting people connected to the military; company policies related to veterans, reservists and their families; the organization’s culture; and other issues. Companies selected to the top employers list were selected based on factors such as veteran hiring preference, veteran on-boarding procedures, company training about the military and military spouse support.
DynCorp International Veteran Hiring Support
Veterans play a key role in DI’s global operations supporting U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives, delivering support solutions for defense, diplomacy and international development in more than 35 countries around the world.
DynCorp International’s veteran employees make up 62 percent of its total employee base. In 2012 alone, DI hired more than 4,000 veterans, more than half of last year’s new hires. Recruiters from Worldwide Recruiting & Staffing Services LLC (WRSS), a wholly owned subsidiary of DynCorp International, work closely with military base transition offices, present at employer panels as well as provide career opportunity information directly to members planning to retire from service.
