Frontier Communications Named A "Top 100" 2014 Military Friendly Employer®

Stocks in this article: FTR

Today’s designation is the latest recognition of Frontier’s commitment to veteran hiring. At a November 5th Pentagon ceremony, Frontier was inducted into the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), part of the Department of Defense Spouse Education and Career Opportunities Program to connect military spouses to more than 200 partner employers committed to helping them find employment, increase their education and experience, and achieve career and personal goals. The MSEP includes corporations, small businesses and other organizations that post job openings on the MSEP Career Portal. Frontier actively participates in the 100,000 Jobs Mission, the Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces and Joining Forces.

“Hiring veterans, their spouses and partners is not just the right thing to do, but a strategic investment by Frontier,” said Frontier Executive Vice President for Human Resources & Administrative Services Cecilia K. McKenney. “Leadership, teamwork, accountability and discipline are critical values at Frontier and present in all of our hires, especially those with a military connection.”

Frontier employees in 27 states are recognizing veterans in a variety of ways. Many locations feature a “Wall of Heroes” covered with letters and photos about military service past and present. President and COO, Dan McCarthy, a 15-year veteran of the U.S. Naval Reserve, is thanking Frontier veterans with a letter, a unique “Frontier Veteran” pin and a company-wide video webcast. Employees and their families are involved in Operation Write Home to create cards and write letters to deployed troops.

“This is one of the most fulfilling initiatives Frontier has been involved in, and we are a better company for it. I strongly encourage every employer to access the many resources that offer gainful employment to a veteran and his or her family,” says Mr. McCarthy. “Frontier is a hiring advocate in our local markets and through our national supplier relationships. We hope other companies join this cause.”
