Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey Designated as a 2014 "Military Friendly Employer®" by G.I. Jobs magazine
Date:11/11/2013

Newark, NJ (PRWEB) November 11, 2013

For the second consecutive year, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey has been named a “Military Friendly Employer®” by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.

Companies competing for the elite Military Friendly Employer® title were assessed on such factors as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

“Horizon supports U.S. military and former military personnel through our recruitment and hiring practices, as well as through our leave policies for employees who are called to active duty,” said Alison Banks-Moore, Chief Diversity Officer, Horizon BCBSNJ. To help foster an enhanced acceptance of diverse communities among Horizon BCBSNJ’s workforce, the company has formed multiple affinity groups, including a Military Affinity Group. “We’re proud to be a Military Friendly Employer® and are grateful to those employees who have served our country with honor and valor.”

The list of Horizon BCBSNJ and other companies qualifying for the new Military Friendly Employers® designation will appear in the December issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and in MilitaryFriendly.com.    

“The 2014 Military Friendly Employers® represent the preeminent tier of companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment,” said Sean Collins, Vice President for Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “Our Military Friendly Employers® constitute the group of companies actually moving the needle and hiring from the military community. The 2014 Military Friendly Employers reported hiring over 117,000 service members and spouses over the last 12 months, representing an average of 14 percent of total new hires.”
