Irvine, CA – November 5, 2015 – Alorica, a worldwide leading provider of customer management outsourcing solutions, today announced that it has earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a data-driven survey, with data independently tested by Ernst & Young, and the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media and its advisory board.
Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies, such as the strength of a company’s military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and policies on National Guard and Reserve service. Alorica is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting from the military community is not only the “right thing to do,” but also makes good business sense.
“At Alorica, we’ve made it our mission to support military veterans and their families through our AloriCares program,” said Andy Lee, CEO, Alorica. “Our clients and our communities are better served with the experience and skill set that military veterans bring to the civilian workforce. We’re honored to be recognized on the 2016 Military Friendly® Employers List and will continue to give back to our veterans and their families.”
Now in its 13th year, Military Friendly® Employers is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. Each year, companies that take the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an advisory board consisting of leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. A full list of board members can be found by visiting MilitaryFriendly.com/advisory-board.
“Companies that have earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer award have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful careers for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and Navy Reserve veteran. “Our Military Friendly® Employers are moving the needle beyond answering ‘why hire military’— they are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® educators to translate military competencies into civilian jobs.”
Alorica will be showcased along with other 2016 Military Friendly Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, as well as on MilitaryFriendly.com.
