Verizon Once Again Named To G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers List

NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Verizon has been named to the G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers List for 2013, in recognition of the company's military recruiting and hiring practices. The company was ranked No. 15 on the list – up from No. 41 last year. Verizon also earned mention as a Military Friendly Spouse Employer for 2013.

The G.I. Jobs magazine's Top 100 list was drawn from a sample of 5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Criteria included the strength of company military-recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies toward National Guard and Reserve service. Verizon employs approximately 12,000 veterans.

"Recruiting the best talent in the industry goes hand in hand with recruiting military veterans," said Magda Yrizarry, Verizon's chief talent and diversity officer. "With their unique leadership experience, technical skills, superb training and mission-driven attitudes, our veterans are a natural fit at Verizon."

To help job-seeking veterans, Verizon has a military career website featuring a U.S. Military Skill Matcher that lets applicants enter their branch of service and specialty code to find job openings that match their background, education and experience.

Verizon also has a variety of programs to support veterans and their families.  One program assists employees who are married to active duty members by finding the employee jobs within Verizon, near where their spouses are assigned. The company's Veteran Advisory Board provides recognition, mentoring and development of veteran employees. 

In addition to actively recruiting and hiring employees with military experience, Verizon offers a variety of benefits to employees serving in the National Guard or Reserves, including some of the best corporate-leave policies in the country.

Verizon's Emergency Military Leave benefit allows employees to continue serving their country while working at Verizon. When an employee who is in the Reserves or National Guard is activated in support of international anti-terrorism and peace-keeping operations, Verizon pays, for up to 36 months, the difference in the employee's Verizon base pay and military base pay, and continues health care and other benefits for the same period.
