Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
U.S. Security Associates (USA) has been named a 2014 Military Friendly Employer® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse. As a security service company with a demonstrated commitment to hiring military talent, USA is proud to win the title for a second time.
G.I. Jobs is a monthly publication that provides resources, employer profiles, job and education opportunities for veterans. Every year, G.I. Jobs and Victory Media select the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® from among 5,000 candidates competing for the distinction. During the selection process, candidate companies’ hiring policies are audited by Ernst & Young. Winners are chosen based on evaluation of key programs and policies, including 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.
Each year, USA sets new goals for military hiring, an effort that has resulted in record veterans employment. The security company’s CEO and President, Charles Schneider, is a former naval officer who aggressively pushes the organization to new benchmarks in hiring veterans. Schneider has pledged USA’s support of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring 100,000 veterans by the year 2020. Schneider is also the driving force behind USA’s Recruiting America’s Brave campaign to provide careers for veterans and military spouses. USA is actively involved with a number of organizations and programs dedicated to finding jobs for veterans, including Hiring Our Heroes, Hero2Hired, Warriors to Work, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, and RecruitMilitary. On November 11th, USA joined dozens of industry-leading employers participating in the Veterans Day Virtual Career Fair hosted by Veteran Recruiting.
“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. The 2014 Military Friendly Employers reported hiring over 117,000 service members and spouses over the last 12 months, representing an average of 14 percent of total new hires.”
