FALLS CHURCH, Va. ( November 12, 2013) – DynCorp International (DI) has been recognized on the 2014 Military Friendly Employer® list by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse. This will be DI’s seventh year on the list, ranking 18th.
“Service members are an essential part of the DI team,” said Steve Gaffney, DynCorp International chairman and chief executive officer. “Not only do 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.”
