MCLEAN, VA – (May 15, 2017) – Military Times today announced its Best for Vets: Employers 2017 rankings. DynCorp International (DI) has again been recognized by Military Times, for the sixth consecutive year.
A valuable resource for veterans, the annual Military Times Best for Vets rankings are the result of a meticulous, months-long process. Military Times invites companies to fill out its nearly 100-question survey, tests to ensure the accuracy of responses, carefully evaluates survey data and includes only the best companies in its published rankings.
In their eighth year, the rankings evaluate companies’ culture, veteran recruiting, veteran policies, and accommodations for members of the National Guard and reserves. Perhaps just as important is what is not factored in: whether companies advertise with their publication or otherwise pay them money. While other military news and rankings outlets have been accused of operating as pay-to-play schemes, Military Times rankings always have been, and remain, independent and objective news/editorial projects.
“The Best for Vets designation and logo cannot be bought. Only earned,” said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings. “The companies on the Military Times Best for Vets list earned their rankings through determined efforts to recruit and support service members, veterans and military families. These efforts deserve recognition from the country and should get the attention of veterans looking for a new career.”
Military Times includes Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times. The company is part of Sightline Media Group, a Regent company.
