AlliedBarton Security Services Named a Top 100 Military Friendly® Employer for Fourth Consecutive Year

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2014) -  AlliedBarton Security Services, www.alliedbarton.com, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, has earned the 2015 Top 100 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. Ranking fifth out of the Top 100, this is AlliedBarton's fourth consecutive recognition.

"AlliedBarton is honored to receive this recognition for the fourth consecutive year," said Jerold Ramos, AlliedBarton's Director of Strategic Recruiting/Military Liaison. "This Veteran's Day, I am excited to see more companies making the commitment to hire military. The next challenge for corporate leaders is to ensure that these American heroes stay and thrive at their company. The retention of veterans, reservists, their families and caregivers should be every organization's priority."

In 2014, AlliedBarton has hired more than 3,850 veterans, reservists, their family members and caregivers and is on target to reach its goal of 5,000 hires per year for five years as part of its pledge though the Joining Forces campaign.

Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a data-driven survey, with data independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media and its Advisory Board. Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies, such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

"The 2015 Military Friendly® Employers represent the preeminent tier of companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses," said Sean Collins, Vice President for Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. "Our Military Friendly® Employers constitute the group of companies moving the needle and realizing significant benefits by hiring from the military community. This year's group of companies reported hiring over 155,000 service members and spouses over the last 12 months, representing a 35% increase over last year and an average of 15% of total new hires."

Now in its 12th year, Military Friendly® Employers is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. Each year, companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Advisory Board consisting of leaders in the military recruitment community. A full list of board members can be found at MilitaryFriendly.com/board.
