AlliedBarton Security Services Named to Victory Media's Military Friendly® Employers List for Fifth Consecutive Year

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2015) -  AlliedBarton Security Services, www.alliedbarton.com, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, has earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. This is AlliedBarton's fifth consecutive recognition.

"Military personnel make a tremendous contribution to the corporate workplace and AlliedBarton has built a strong military hiring strategy because we value the skills these individuals bring to the security industry," said Kevin Washer, AlliedBarton. "To again be a part of the Military Friendly Employer list is an honor. The attention Victory Media brings to the critical nature of military hiring is an important for both organizational leaders and military personnel."

Through its military hiring program, Hire Our Heroes(SM), AlliedBarton is on target to reach its goal of 5,000 hires per year for five years, a pledge made though the Joining Forces campaign.

"Companies that have earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer award have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful careers for transitioning service members and spouses," said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and Navy Reserve veteran. "Our Military Friendly® Employers are moving the needle beyond answering 'why hire military' -- they are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® educators to translate military competencies into civilian jobs."

Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a data-driven survey, with data independently tested by EY (Ernst & Young) 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.

Now in its 13th 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 higher education and military recruitment community. A full list of board members can be found at MilitaryFriendly.com/advisory-board.
