RecruitMilitary, the national leader in helping employers connect with high-quality veteran talent, announced the winners for the 2017 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military today. 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.

“We are honored to be named a Most Valuable Employer for Military for the fifth consecutive year. At TMC, our company culture is a natural fit for veterans getting out of the military, and we often hear from them how our structure and pride reminds them of their military experience,” says Cheryl Freauff, Vice President of Driver Recruiting for TMC.

“Our nation's heroes have been trained to work efficiently under pressure, can quickly adapt to change and technology advances as well as honor integrity; all the same things we value at TMC. With the trucking industry being crucial to our nation’s economy, we find an importance in hiring military veterans because they possess leadership and respect for doing their job safely and correctly,” Freauff explains. “In fact, over 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."

“Veterans truly represent the finest talent our country has to offer,” said Peter Gudmundsson, President of RecruitMilitary. “Judging by the stature of the businesses that comprise the Most Valuable Employers for Military winners, we can see that organizations thrive when they include veteran hiring initiatives in their human resource strategies.”

The 2017 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military was open to all U.S.-based companies. 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.

Prior to the 2017 application opening, the MVE recognition was produced by CivilianJobs.com. All previous winners can be found in the MVE Winner Archive section at http://RecruitMilitary.com/MVE.
