Werner Enterprises Honors Veterans And Receives An Award

Stocks in this article: WERN

Werner Enterprises (NASDAQ: WERN), a premier transportation and logistics company, honored its veteran associates with a ceremony on Friday, Nov. 9 in the main lobby of its global headquarters in the same week as being named a “Top 100 Military Friendly Employer for 2013.” Werner President and COO Derek Leathers spoke at the ceremony. In addition, Werner displayed the “Remembering Our Fallen” exhibit which features photographs commemorating men and women from Nebraska and western Iowa who gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“We are very proud that it has become a tradition here at Werner to honor Veterans Day,” stated Leathers. “It is extremely important to pay tribute to those who have given their lives in pursuit of our freedom as well as give proper recognition to our veteran associates.”

Werner was selected as a “Top 100 Military Friendly Employer for 2013” by GI Jobs magazine based on the strength of its military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service and policies toward National Guard and Reserve services. The list of Military Friendly Employers is determined via an annual, data-driven survey conducted by Victory Media, Inc.

“Werner strategically recruits and employs talented men and women who have served in the armed forces,” said Leathers. “These mission-minded individuals add a depth of quality to our workforce that is invaluable in terms of renewable skills and dedication.”

Werner has been widely acknowledged for its successful programs designed for military veterans who transition to the workplace. Werner’s Professional Truck Driver Apprenticeship program allows veterans to use Veterans Education Benefits to pay for training while providing structured on-the-job instruction for up to one year. Werner also has a team of hiring specialists dedicated to assisting veteran associates with their benefits. Military veterans comprise approximately 20 percent of Werner’s workforce with 24 associates currently deployed.
