Werner Enterprises has been selected as a "Top 100 Military Friendly Employer for 2013" by G.I. Jobs magazine. The selection was based on Werner's strength of military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service and policies toward National Guard and Reserve services. The list of Military Friendly Employers is determined via an annual, data-driven survey conducted by Victory Media, Inc.
Approximately 20 percent of Werner associates are former military. To attract and retain veterans, the Company instituted Werner Enterprises' Professional Truck Driver Apprenticeship Program that allows veterans to draw from their G.I. Bill during their first year of employment. In addition, Werner has a team of hiring specialists dedicated to assisting veterans with their benefits.
