DynCorp International has been named one of the leading veteran-friendly employers on Military Times EDGE magazine’s 2012 list of “Best for Vets” employers.
“Our workforce is now more than sixty-five percent veterans,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and chief executive officer of DynCorp International. “We value the experience former servicemen and women bring to DI and it enables us to better deliver support solutions to our customers.”
“Our list recognizes companies that go above and beyond the call of duty for their military and veteran employees with policies that help vets with everything from recruiting to reserve duty, as measured by a lengthy list of policies we asked about in our survey. DynCorp International was one of 40 that proved it supports America’s veterans not only in word, but in deed,” said Cid Standifer, database editor, Military Times EDGE magazine.
Military Times EDGE surveyed more than 1,000 major companies and top government contractors about recruiting and hiring policies, social recognition for veterans and pay and benefits for reservists. Companies selected to the top employers list were selected based on recruiting efforts, reserve policies and corporate culture.
DI, which ranks number nine on the list, was previously ranked number 17 on Military Times EDGE magazine’s 2010 list of Top 50 “Best for Vets” employers.
