Averitt Recognized as Military Friendly Employer

Averitt Recognized as Military Friendly Employer

Averitt_MilitaryFriendly_01

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – As a result of its continuing commitment to military veterans, Averitt Express was recently recognized in a national survey as a Military Friendly Company.

The Military Friendly Company survey was compiled by veteran-owned business Viqtory. According to its website, Military Friendly Employers “strive toward and succeed in the areas that matter most in helping veterans and other members of the military community make the transition from the military to satisfying employment in the civilian world.”

Additionally, Viqtory says Military Friendly Employers are “better for veterans, with the hiring, retention, advancement and employee development programs in place to help them reach their career goals.”

As part of the survey, Viqtory polled military veterans, and combined those results with public data to determine the companies that meet the stringent Military Friendly Employer criteria. The results were then audited by the professional services firm Ernst & Young.

“Military veterans are an outstanding fit for our culture, because they know the importance of service, teamwork and working toward a common goal,” said Gary Sasser, Averitt’s chairman and chief executive officer, and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Reserves. “I’m proud that we have been named a Military Friendly Employer, and I’m even more excited about the future as we continue our commitment to making Averitt Express a place that veterans can call home.”

As part of Averitt’s commitment to military veterans, in 2016 it made a pledge to hire 1,200 veterans by 2020. Averitt recently delivered on that commitment five months ahead of schedule and continues to focus on new goals of hiring even more veterans.
