Oak Brook, IL, November 11, 2021 – LAUNCH Technical Workforce Solutions announced today that it has earned the 2022 Bronze Military Friendly® Employer designation, marking the sixth year in a row the company has earned this designation. The company was also recognized for its Military Friendly Supplier Diversity Program. Institutions earning the Military Friendly ® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over a thousand companies participated in the 2022 Military Friendly ® survey.
Jean Rollo, LAUNCH President & COO, commented, “We have a strong commitment at LAUNCH to hire veterans and those transitioning out of the military through our Working Heroes program. Our nation’s veterans offer leadership experience, strong discipline and a proven work ethic – all key traits to achieve success on our team and with our clients. Being recognized on this list for six years running is a tribute to the Working Heroes program and we will focus on its continued growth.”
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly ® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers ® designation create and elevate the standard for military programs across the globe, they have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance the veterans and service members within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly ®. “To them, hiring veterans and servicemembers is more than just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.”
LAUNCH will be showcased along with other 2022 Military Friendly ® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
