LAUNCH Earns 2023 Silver Military Friendly® Employer Designation
Oak Brook, IL, November 11, 2022 – LAUNCH Technical Workforce Solutions announced today that it has earned the 2023 Silver Military Friendly® Employer designation, marking the seventh year in a row the company has earned this designation. Institutions earning the Military Friendly ® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over a thousand companies participated in the 2023 Military Friendly ® survey.
Jean Rollo, LAUNCH President & COO, commented, “Earning the Military Friendly designation for the seventh year in a row is a testament to our commitment to hiring veterans through our Working Heroes program. We will continue to focus on this effort and grow this program even more over the years to come. Our nation’s veterans offer leadership experience, strong discipline and a proven work ethic – all key traits to achieve success as part of our team and in working with our clients.”
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly ® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers® designation create and elevate the standard for military programs across the globe, they have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance the veterans and service members within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly ®. “To them, hiring veterans and servicemembers is more than just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.
LAUNCH will be showcased along with other 2023 Military Friendly ® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
