"Our organization is committed to hiring veterans, reservists, their families and caregivers through our company-wide military hiring program, Hire Our Heroes(SM)," said Jerold Ramos, Manager, Talent Acquisition, AlliedBarton. "The spouses of our veterans and reservists carry the same qualities that we find so appealing in them. They are hard-working, dedicated and adaptable, and are a good fit for our organization. We are excited to be named to this list for the second year in a row and we are proud to support these great individuals."
