Methodist Health System Earns 2021 Military Friendly® Employer Designation
Methodist Health System announced today that it has earned the 2021 Military Friendly® Employer, Silver award level. Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Hundreds of companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of 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.
“We are honored to have received the esteemed Military Friendly Employer designation recognizing our ongoing commitment to providing opportunities for our nation's past, present, and future veterans,” says Jim O’Reilly, VP of HR Operations at Methodist. “We are committed to serving those who have sacrificed and served to protect our freedoms.”
“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.”
