Geo Owl Earns 2021 Military Friendly Employer Designation
Wilmington, NC (September 15, 2020) — Geo Owl announced today that it has earned the 2021 Military ® Friendly Employer.
Institutions earning this prestigious designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Hundreds of companies participated in the 2021 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
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 that have earned this designation have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance veterans within their organizations,” said Josh Rosen, Director of Military Friendly . “To them, hiring veterans isn’t just the right thing to do. It’s good for business.” Geo Owl will be showcased along with other 2021 Military Friendly Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
About Military Friendly Employers: The list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal contractors nationwide, the input of military® employees, and responses to the proprietary, data driven Military Friendly Employers survey from participating companies. The survey questions, methodology, criteria, and weightings were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by Ernst & Young. The survey is administered for free and is open to companies that have hired veterans in the past 12 months. Criteria for consideration can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
