AmeriVet Securities Honored as a VETS Indexes 5 Star Employer
VETS Indexes, a firm dedicated to promoting veteran employment, is proud to announce that AmeriVet Securities has earned the designation VETS Indexes 5 Star Employer, as part of the 2021 VETS Indexes Employer Awards. The award recognizes the organization’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, retaining, developing and supporting veteran employees and others in the military-connected community.
“Coming out of the military with cutting-edge technical training, as well as critical soft skills including leadership and teamwork, veterans represent one of our nation’s richest talent pools. Yet all too often, civilian employers fail to put in place the policies and practices needed to understand and attract military-connected talent,” said George Altman, managing director of VETS Indexes.
“AmeriVet Securities has established itself as one of the nation’s top veteran employers, with its status as a VETS Indexes 5 Star Employer. Their commitment to not just hiring veterans, but then helping them to develop into integral and high-ranking employees, is outstanding and deserves recognition.”
The first inaugural VETS Indexes Employer Awards are based on VETS Indexes’ granular and objective 65-question survey, which evaluates employers across the following 5 categories:
- Veteran job candidate recruiting and hiring
- Veteran employee development and retention
- Veteran-inclusive company policies and culture
- Support for members of the National Guard and Reserves
- Military spouse/family support
More than 300 employers participated in this competitive process, with over 100 organizations submitting completed surveys to be considered for the awards. Responding organizations included companies large and small, government agencies and departments, and nonprofit groups. Not all organizations that participated were recognized with awards. The VETS Indexes Employer Awards are reserved only for the organizations whose veteran-related efforts stand out from the pack, as the best.
