This is the 15th consecutive year that JB Hunt has been included in the ranking.
Establishments that achieved the Military-Friendly Employer designation were assessed using public data sources and proprietary survey responses. Over 1,000 companies participated in the 2022 Military Friendly survey.
“JB Hunt is proud to support the hard work and dedication of our military community, âsaid John Roberts, President and CEO of JB Hunt. “We are committed to ensuring the success of Veterans and we see tremendous value in the skills and work ethic they bring to our company.
The methodology, criteria and weights were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders from the higher education and military recruiting community. Final scores were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for applicants, new hire retention, employee turnover and promotion and l advancement of veterans and military employees.
“Companies that earn the Military Friendly Employers designation are setting and raising the standard for military programs around the world, they have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance veterans and service members within their organizations â said Kayla Lopez, director of military partnerships, Friend of the Military. “For them, hiring veterans and military is more than the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.
