CLEVELAND, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its Veteran's Day observation this year, KeyBank is proud to announce that it has been named to the list of top " Military Friendly® Employers" for the second consecutive year. The recognition is awarded by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse Magazine and reflects the emphasis Key places on recruiting and training military veterans who are joining or rejoining the workforce. Now in its 14th year, Military Friendly ® Employers is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. 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 higher education and military recruitment community. KeyBank is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting from the military community is not only the "right thing to do," but it makes good business sense.
