RecruitMilitary Recognizes TMC Transportation As A 2017 Most Valuable Employers for Military Finalist
RecruitMilitary, the national leader in helping employers connect with high-quality veteran talent, announced the finalists for the 2017 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military in March. The MVE recognition serves to help military-experienced job seekers identify the top employers to target for civilian careers. MVEs are selected annually based on those employers whose recruiting, training, and retention plans best serve military service members and veterans. The award marks its ninth edition in 2017.
“At TMC, our company culture is a natural fit for veterans getting out of the military. We are constantly hearing from our military veterans who come to work for us how our structure and pride reminds them of their military experience,” says Cheryl Freauff, TMC’s Vice President of Driver Recruiting. “Veterans get a lot of training in the military that enhances their leadership and respect for doing their job right and safe the first time and every time after. We have a strong focus at TMC for hiring veterans for various departments within our company, such as logistics, operations, administration, safety, training, driving and maintenance. Our success in hiring military veterans is measured by the fact that 35% of our employees are veterans, and all have played a major role in helping us become one of the largest employee-owned open deck transportation companies who provide expert transportation services and supply-chain management solutions throughout the 48 contiguous states.”
“Hiring veterans just makes good business sense,” said Peter Gudmundsson, President of RecruitMilitary. “It is evident that companies across the country see the value that veteran talent brings to the table by this year’s list of MVEs. I congratulate each of the finalists on their veteran hiring strategies and for their selection."
The 2017 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military was open to all U.S.-based companies. Winners will be selected from this pool of finalist companies and will be announced in May. In observance of Armed Forces Day, the annual list of MVEs will be released in the May/June issue of RecruitMilitary’s Search & Employ® magazine.
