TMC Transportation Named a 2018 Top 10 Military Friendly Employer
on Tuesday, November 28, 2017
TMC Transportation announced today that it has earned the 2018 Top 10 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media. First published in 2003, 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 three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies; personal opinion data from veteran employees; and proprietary Military Friendly® survey data from participating organizations. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2018 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media 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 Transportation is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the “right thing to do,” but the right thing for business.
“We are honored to be named a 2018 Top 10 Military Friendly® Employer. 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.”
“Companies that have earned this designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, 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 2018 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2018 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
