SAN DIEGO–Cubic Corporation announced its designation as a Bronze Military Friendly Employer awardee by Victory Media.
The Bronze Award winners have programs that scored within 40 percent of the tenth ranked organization in its category. First published in 2003, Military Friendly Employers is a comprehensive and influential resource for transitioning service members and veterans. Each year, the list of Military Friendly Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.
“It is an honor to be recognized for the fifth year as a Military Friendly Employer,” said Darryl Albertson, chief human resources and diversity officer of Cubic Corporation. “The Military Friendly Employer designation is a testament to Cubic’s commitment to implementing effective hiring practices and retention programs to best meet the needs of veterans and service members as they transition into civilian life.”
Over 40 percent of Cubic’s employees have military service backgrounds. Cubic commonly hires transitioning military service members and veterans for roles such as field and electronics technicians, information technology professionals, engineers as well as trainers and instructors.
“Companies that have earned this designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, chief product officer at Victory Media. “Our Military Friendly Employers have moved beyond answering ‘why hire military?’ They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers.”
Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly Employer designation were evaluated using three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies, personal opinion data from veteran employees and proprietary Military Friendly survey data from participating organizations. Ratings methodology, criteria and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly Employers portion of the 2018 Military Friendly Companies survey.
Cubic will be showcased along with other 2018 Military Friendly Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs magazine, the January 2018 issue of Military Spouse magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
