The annual “Top 100 Military Friendly Employers” list is compiled from a data-driven survey sample of 5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Criteria for selection to the list included the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service. The survey results that determined the 2013 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by G.I. Jobs.
“Veterans make up a very important part of our workforce,” said John Procopio, senior vice president and chief human resources officer for Exelis. “At some of our locations the percentage of employees with a military background can be as high as 70 to 80 percent, and as a team our employees bring diverse experiences in the military and business worlds that fuel the power of our ingenuity.”
