AlliedBarton Security Services Named to the G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military Friendly Employers List for 2012

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - AlliedBarton Security Services, www.alliedbarton.com, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, is named to the G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list for 2012.

The annual Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list is developed from an estimated 5,000 companies (those with over $500 million in annual revenues), based on company criteria including the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, and company policies toward national guard and reserve service.

"AlliedBarton has made military recruiting a top priority throughout our organization, and we couldn't be more honored to be named to this list," said Bill Whitmore, AlliedBarton President and CEO. "Our nation's military personnel are well-trained, responsible and dedicated to serving their country and their communities. They possess the leadership qualities and skills needed to provide a high level of security services."

As of June 2011, more than 13 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans were unemployed. Locally and nationally, through partnerships with a number of military assistance groups, AlliedBarton has committed to hiring veterans and reservists.

"It is important to support service members and their families who have sacrificed so much. They have invested a portion of their lives to maintain our nation's freedom and promote freedom around the globe. Employers should give back by investing in their civilian careers," said Whitmore.
