MCLEAN, Va. – (November 21, 2016) – DynCorp International (DI) has been recognized as a 2017 Military Friendly® Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM, and Military Spouse. This will be DI’s tenth year on the list. First published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.
DynCorp International is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the “right thing to do,” but the right thing for business. “At DynCorp International we recognize the experience and dedication that veterans contribute to our business as employees, business partners and suppliers,” said CEO Lou Von Thaer. “In word and deed, DynCorp International affirms our corporate belief in the value of veteran suppliers and veteran employees every day. We offer extraordinary opportunities and challenging assignments to people who share our commitment to quality and service.”
Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2017 Military Friendly® Companies survey. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.

“Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media. “Our Military Friendly® Employers have moved beyond answering ‘why hire military?’ They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers.”
DynCorp International will be showcased along with the other 2017 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse magazine, and on militaryfriendly.com.
