TMC Transportation, the leader in the flatbed trucking industry,  has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM Jobs, and Military Spouse. Military Friendly® Employers is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.

Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2017 Military Friendly® Companies survey. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media, along with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and 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.

TMC is committed to hiring military talent. The employee-owned company knows first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the “right thing to do,” but the right thing for business.

“With over 38% of the company comprised of military veterans, TMC has always provided a smooth transition to the civilian workforce,” says Glen McCravy, Executive Vice President of Human Resources & Risk Management. “We take pride in hiring veterans in all aspects of our organization, from drivers, to mechanics, to upper management. We value the expertise and professionalism they bring to the table. We feel that the pride, structure, and training at TMC allows veterans to adjust extremely well into our company environment. 

TMC participates in a wide range of programs to not only recruit, but to acclimate and streamline the success of our military veterans in the transportation industry. TMC also helps to utilize OJT and GI Bill Apprenticeship programs for those looking to start a career as a professional truck driver. 

“Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans, and their spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media. “Our Military Friendly® Employers have moved beyond answering ‘why hire military?’. They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers.”

TMC Transportation will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
