IAP makes top 20 on Military Friendly Employers list
Cape Canaveral, FL – IAP Worldwide Services, Inc. ranked in the top 20 on the 2011 GI Jobs magazine Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers® list.
“IAP prides itself on the service and commitment it provides our Department of Defense and federal customers,” said IAP President Bob Phillips. “Veterans and those currently serving understand this commitment better than anyone, and it shows in their work. We’re honored to be recognized on this list, and we’re honored to give current and retired service members a way to continue supporting their country.”
IAP was named to the Top 100 for a second year in a row, and moved more than 50 spots up the list from last year to be ranked number 20. The list represents the top two percent of more than 5,000 eligible companies that earn a minimum of $500 million in annual revenue. Rankings are based on the percentage of employees with prior military service, benefits offered and company policies toward National Guard and Reserve service.
“This isn’t about charity or patriotism. It’s about good business. The companies on our list understand that,” said Rich McCormack, who heads G.I. Jobs’ list research.
The Military Friendly Employers® list is in its eighth year and serves as the primary benchmark of corporate recruiting programs aimed at veterans. The annual survey is conducted by GI Jobs Magazine and is one of the primary tools to determine the nation’s most veteran-friendly employers.
