PITT OHIO, a leader in regional and national logistics services, announced today that it has earned the 2019 Military Friendly® Employer designation, achieving both Gold and Top 10 status, ranking 3rd among 224 employers.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2019 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
Supporting the armed forces starts at the very top of our company. “Our company is as strong as the workforce we employ," states Chuck Hammel, President of PITT OHIO. "Members of the military have a well-earned reputation for leadership, teamwork, accountability and discipline. We look for this type of work ethic and commitment in our employees."
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.
“PITT OHIO is proud to receive this Military Friendly designation and our 3rd place ranking which endorses what we have believed at PITT OHIO for many years,” said Brian McGuire, Human Resource Vice President. “We welcome and support our heroes and their families in making the transition from military service to civilian life. Today, military veterans make up about 10% of our workforce in a variety of roles across the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest regions, including drivers, dockworkers, supervisors, and office personnel. PITT OHIO is committed to creating a home for our heroes.”
PITT OHIO will be showcased along with other 2019 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2019 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
