DynCorp International (DI) has been recognized as a top veteran employer by Military Times for the third year in a row.
“Nearly 70 percent of our 2013 hires were former military personnel,” said Steve Gaffney, DynCorp International chairman and chief executive officer. “Their experience tracks well with the experience needed in many of our programs, and the values that they carried with them throughout their military careers help reinforce the values-based culture that sets DI apart from other companies.”
Military Times focused on culture and policies that cater to military veterans when conducting and scoring the fifth annual Best for Vets: Employers survey, a nearly 90-question analysis of a company’s efforts to connect with veterans and provide an environment for success.
Rankings were developed based on the answers that companies provided to questions about their recruiting of people connected to the military; company policies related to veterans, reservists and their families; and the organization’s culture.
