TUALATIN, Ore., May 4, 2018 – (NASDAQ: YRCW) – Reddaway has been named as a Military Friendly Employer by VIQTORY. Since 2003, VIQTORY has created its annual list of companies meeting its criteria for the designation. Being named a Military Friendly Employer affirms Reddaway’s ongoing efforts to recruit, hire, and train veterans and help them translate their military competencies into civilian careers.
“We are grateful to all veterans and committed to supporting them in their search for employment opportunities in the transportation industry,” said Bob Stone, President of Reddaway. “We know they bring with them the skills, attitude, and team spirit that will help them become successful Reddaway employees.
The Military Friendly Employer designation recognizes our past efforts to recruit those who’ve served in the military, efforts that we intend to continue in the future as we welcome new veterans to our team.”
To be named a Military Friendly Employer, companies must meet or exceed the standards in at least three out of four critical areas of commitment to the military community, including:
- Recruiting, hiring, and training veterans
- Recruiting, hiring, and training military spouses
- Partnering with and supporting Veteran-Owned Businesses
- Commitment to military consumer protections and having a positive brand reputation in the military community
Reddaway not only has focused efforts to find and recruit veterans, but also supports veterans and their families through cooperative activities with veteran-support organizations, company events recognizing veterans, and apparel available to Reddaway employees identifying them as past members of the military.
First presented in 2003, the Military Friendly Employer designation is based on extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal contractors nationwide, input of military employees, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly Employers survey from participating companies.
