Harris Corporation Named One Of The Top Military Friendly Companies By G.I. Jobs And U.S. Veterans Magazines

Stocks in this article: HRS

Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) has been named to G.I. Jobs and U. S. Veterans magazines’ list of companies that have a strong commitment to hiring military veterans.

For the fifth consecutive year, Harris was recognized by G.I. Jobs as one of the top 100 military-friendly companies in the U. S. Harris is ranked 76 on the list. Selection was based on the strength of military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service and company policies toward National Guard and Reserve service.

U.S. Veterans Magazine’s annual “Best of the Best” lists are compiled from market research, independent research, confidential employee interviews and responses to surveys. Harris shares this honor with 99 other top-rated companies who are renowned for their achievements in recruiting and employing veterans.

"Harris is a successful company in large part because we have employees with outstanding leadership skills and a mindset for tackling the tough challenges faced by our customers,” said William Brown, president and chief executive officer of Harris. “Our military veterans are equipped with these skills the moment they join us, making them a valued resource in our company. We are proud to once again be recognized for our commitment to military friendly programs.”

Harris has nearly 1,800 veterans among its 15,000 employees worldwide. The company has specific programs focused on military recruitment, with eight full-time employees averaging 50 percent of their time on sourcing and hiring candidates with prior military experience. About 15 percent of Harris new hires are military veterans.

Harris also partners with the Orlando Magic basketball team to honor military men, women and their families with the Seats for Soldiers program. Game tickets are provided to men and women at military bases around Florida. The events include taped messages to soldiers throughout the game, a pre-game presentation and other activities for military personnel and their families.
