GERMANTOWN, Md.; Nov. 15, 2021 –Amentum, a leading contractor to U.S. federal and allied governments, announced today that it has earned a top Military Friendly ® Employer designation for the second straight year.
“Amentum is proud to once again be ranked elite among companies our size and recognized for our commitment to our employees who previously served in our nation’s armed forces,” said John Vollmer, Amentum CEO. “With about 10,000 veterans among our ranks, we appreciate how the skills learned in the military make outstanding employees. We share many of the same values, including the importance of leadership and teamwork, discipline and dedication to mission success.”
Amentum was ranked second among its peer companies as a Military Friendly ® Employer as well as being recognized as the number one Military Friendly® Spouse Employer, number one Military Friendly ® Supplier Diversity Program, and number two Military Friendly ® Brand.
“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.”
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.
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.
Amentum will be showcased along with other 2022 Military Friendly ® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
