ManTech International Corporation (NASDAQ:MANT) has been ranked sixth on the G.I. Jobs list of Top Military Friendly Employers®. This is the sixth consecutive year that ManTech has been named to the publication’s prestigious list of the top 100 military friendly companies. ManTech ranked second among defense companies.

G.I. Jobs compiled its list from a sample of 5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Criteria included the strength of a company’s military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, and policies toward National Guard and Reserve service.

More than 50 percent of ManTech’s current employees are veterans, and many of ManTech’s employees continue to serve in the U.S. National Guard and Reserves.

“Our servicemen and women are a tremendous resource. They have earned the nation’s respect and admiration, and we are proud to be recognized consistently as one of the top military friendly employers,” said ManTech Chairman and CEO George J. Pedersen. “The skills our veterans acquire while in service—and more importantly, the values that guide them and the work ethic they bring to the job—are of great value to any business. It would be impossible to put a price tag on the contributions veterans make to this company and to our ability to support the missions of the United States government.”

ManTech gives high priority to recruiting military veterans, particularly to fill positions to satisfy the emerging needs of the United States Armed Forces and government agencies. Veterans carry out critical responsibilities in logistics and supply-chain management, C4ISR, cyber security, systems engineering, intelligence analysis, software and IT support, space and satellite communications, and corporate administrative functions for ManTech.
