Exchange recognized as top employer for military spouses

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service announced today that it has earned the 2014 Military Spouse Employer title by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse.

Companies competed for the Military Friendly Employers title via a data-driven survey of more than 5,000 companies with resulting survey 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 military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

The Exchange aggressively seeks to hire military talent and has found that hiring from the military community is a strategic competitive advantage.

“I’m delighted to hear the great news in being recognized for our superb efforts to hire military spouses,” said Exchange Deputy Director Maj. Gen. Joseph Ward. “Our military spouses play such a huge role in supporting our troops – it is wonderful to see so many companies, to include the Exchange, recognize what they bring to the fight. †Our military spouses truly represent our motto: family serving family.”

Now in its 11th year, Military Friendly EmployersR media is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. †Each year companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an advisory board consisting of leaders in the military recruitment community. †A full list of board members can be found at MilitaryFriendly.com/board.

The Exchange will be showcased, along with other 2014 Military Friendly Employers, in the January edition of “Military Spouse Magazine” and online at MilitaryFriendly.com.
