Werner Enterprises was recently designated a Best for Vets Employer by the Military Times for the second consecutive year. The publication’s annual list recognizes 75 companies for exemplary hiring efforts and employment benefits for military veterans and spouses.
Werner’s survey-based ranking included several performance areas identified by the Military Times:
· Number of military veteran associates
· Number of 2015 military veteran hires
· Percentage of recruiting budget for military veterans
· Military veteran spouse policies
Since 2011, Werner has hired more than 7,550 military veterans and has pledged to hire 2,000 military veterans in 2016. Since May 2013, Werner has hired more than 400 military veteran spouses.
“We take great pride in our military veteran associates and we will continue to invest in their success here at Werner,” said President and Chief Operating Officer Derek Leathers. “We hope their numbers grow as we continue to expand our methods to support their transition.”
