ATLANTA, (August 31, 2004) Â Transition Assistance Online (http://www.taonline.com), the leader in online military transition recruiting, announced that they have awarded Wackenhut Corporation with the second annual Military Employer of the Year Award.
The Military Employer of the Year Award recognizes the authorized employer who best exemplifies a commitment to hiring exiting and former service members from the U.S. Military. Employers were judged on several criteria including dedicated staff for military recruiting efforts, outreach activities designed to attract separating military candidates, and support and training programs offered to former service members once hired by the organization.
Transition Assistance Online selected Wackenhut Corporation for this award because of the companyÂs demonstrated and continuing work to include a military dimension in its overall recruiting initiatives. Working with Internet recruiting firms such as Transition Assistance Online, Wackenhut Corporation ensures that job opportunities are made available to military personnel via advertising and promotion in as many military-oriented venues and career sites as possible. In addition, Wackenhut CorporationÂs recruiting representatives attend numerous military transitioning career fairs. The company also provides a highly-developed educational packet to help employees who have transitioned from military service learn about Wackenhut: the services it offers, the workplace environment, and the company resources available to help with their new career.
Of the 20 finalists, Sprint also made Honorable Mention status for the companyÂs inception of their formal military recruitment program and being a leading provider of various wireless, long distance and data services to U.S. Armed Service installations worldwide.
With roughly 225,000 service men and women leaving the United States Armed Forces every year, it is a diverse and talented candidate pool into which more and more U.S. firms are tapping. Candidates for TAOnline.comÂs Military Employer of the Year have learned the value of hiring former military members and the great benefits these people bring to their new employers, such as: a successful work ethic, demonstrated leadership abilities, technical skills and much more. Organizations that hire from the military are not only rewarded with outstanding employees, they also have the satisfaction of knowing that they are providing the men and women of the United States Armed Forces with their next career opportunity, after bravely and loyally serving their country.
