CLEVELAND -- Power management company Eaton has earned the 2015 Military Friendly® Employer designation for the sixth consecutive year by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse magazines. Eaton is the top-ranked company in the manufacturing industry category and ranks 27th overall on the 2015 list, up from 43 in 2014.
“Eaton values the training and experience that veterans bring and is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting from the military community can contribute to building a company’s strategic competitive advantage,” said George Bernloehr, senior military talent acquisition consultant for Eaton.
“We’re honored to again be recognized as a Military Friendly Employer. This signifies that more military service members, veterans and organizations are recognizing that Eaton’s core values, philosophy and stability all provide the opportunity to grow in a long-lasting and rewarding career, making us an employer of choice for military veterans,” Bernloehr said.
Eaton was evaluated on the strength of its military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
“The 2015 Military Friendly Employers represent the preeminent tier of companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Sean Collins, vice president for Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “Our Military Friendly Employers constitute the group of companies moving the needle and realizing significant benefits by hiring from the military community. This year’s group of companies reported hiring over 155,000 service members and spouses over the last 12 months, representing a 35 percent increase over last year and an average of 15 percent of total new hires.”
