Hormel Foods Debuts On The Top Military Friendly Employer List By G.I. Jobs

Hormel Foods (NYSE: HRL) announced today that it has been recognized for the first time by  G.I. Jobs magazine as one of America’s Top 100 Military Friendly Employers ®. The company debuted at No. 59 on the list. 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.

Hormel Foods was recognized for its support of military veterans and National Guard and Reserve members with its military recruitment. The recruitment program provides outreach and professional development opportunities for employees with military backgrounds and assists them with the transition from the military to a corporate culture. In addition, Hormel Foods will also offer internal training courses through its military and veterans employee resource group, which is designed to assist in transitioning military veterans and help ensure a smooth on-boarding at the company.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized on this list for the first time,” said Jeffrey M. Ettinger, chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer at Hormel Foods. “Hormel Foods continues to benefit from the unique skills and experiences of our military veterans. Their leadership, integrity and perseverance are an asset to the company, and we are grateful for their significant contributions to our success.”

The Hormel Foods company profile, including open positions that are a fit for military personnel, can be found on MilitaryFriendly.com. Using the priority data engine on MilitaryFriendly.com, job seekers are able to view the Top 100 ranked employers compiled according to list methodology as well as design their own custom lists according to their preferences. Custom, user-directed lists can then be saved and shared socially, allowing each job seeker to find their unique #1 Military Friendly Employer ®.

Now in its tenth year, the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers ® list is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. 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. Each year companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Advisory Board consisting of leaders in the military recruitment community. A full list of board members can be found at www.MilitaryFriendly.com/board.
