ATLANTA – November 11, 2014 – U.S. Security Associates (USA) is recognized among the 2015 Military Friendly Employers® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines. This is the third consecutive year the security company has made the G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Employers® list. USA has also been selected by G.I. Jobs as one of the top Military Friendly Spouse Employers®.
G.I. Jobs is a monthly publication that provides resources, employer profiles, and job and education opportunities for veterans. Every year, G.I. Jobs and Victory Media select the top Military Friendly Employers® from among thousands of candidates competing for the distinction. During the selection process, candidate companies' hiring policies are audited by Ernst & Young. Winners are chosen based on evaluation of key programs and policies, including the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
Founded by a veteran, USA has been military friendly from the start, and since launching its Recruiting America's Brave campaign, the security company is reporting record veterans employment. USA kicked off the Recruiting America's Brave campaign by pledging to support the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring 100,000 veterans by the year 2020. To meet veteran hiring goals, USA actively partners with a number of organizations and programs, including Hiring Our Heroes, Hero2Hired, Warriors to Work, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, and RecruitMilitary. On December 11th, USA recruiters are exhibiting at the RecruitMilitary Orlando Veterans Job Fair, the final stop in 2014 on USA's tour of RecruitMilitary expos this year.
For Founder and Chairman of the Board Chuck Schneider, USA's placement on the G.I. Jobs list of 2015 Military Friendly Employers® is cause for extra celebration this Veterans Day. "As a former naval officer," says Schneider, "I am proud to see U.S. Security Associates recognized in the top tier of companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment."
USA and other 2015 Military Friendly Employers® will be showcased in the December edition of G.I. Jobs magazine and online at MilitaryFriendly.com.
