GIJOBS.COM | DECEMBER 2018 | G.I. JOBS 149 THE LIST OF MILITARY FRIENDLY ® EMPLOYERS and Military Friendly ® Employer ratings are assessed through the evaluation of both public data about the organization and proprietary data gathered through our free Military Friendly ® Employers survey, which is now a part of the Military Friendly ® Companies survey. The annual, data- driven Military Friendly ® Employers survey assessment is available at no cost to thousands of companies and federal contractors nationwide; employers must have hired military veterans within the last 12 months in order to participate. Each year, employers taking the survey are held to a higher standard via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and our advisory council. Survey responses are weighted according to the categories below. Final survey results and ratings are determined by combining an employer's survey scores with the assessment of the organization's ability to meet minimum thresholds for the recruiting, hiring, advancement and retention of veterans and military employees. The benchmark is set by the leading organization. CURRENT SURVEY CRITERIA Organizations must successfully complete the Military Friendly ® Employers portion of the Military Friendly ® Companies survey to verify that they meet at least three of the following benchmarks: 1. New Hire Retention Rate for Veterans is greater than 50%. 2. New Hire Retention for Veterans is higher than for Non-Military Employees. 3. New Hire Retention Rate for Guard & Reserve Employees is greater than 50%. 4. Military Employee Turnover is lower than for Non-Military Employees. 5. Military Employee Turnover is less than 20%. 6. Promotions and Advancements of Military Employees is higher than for Non-Military Employees. 7. Percent of Military Applicants selected is higher than for Non-Military Applicants selected. 8. Guard and Reserve policies exceed federal requirements. Advertising in G.I. Jobs, or purchasing services, is not considered when scoring surveys or earning the Military Friendly ® designation. Only employers that have successfully met the minimum thresholds and standards, have completed and submitted the current year's survey, and have been scored as being Military Friendly ® can use the designation title. Employers that receive the Military Friendly ® designation are provided a free profile in G.I. Jobs and on militaryfriendly.com to make it easy for our audience to learn more about the organization. It is important to note that our scoring is fully automated.

Methodology reviews are performed by EY Assurance Services unit.
