Boca Raton, Fla. (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
The GEO Group, Inc. (“GEO”), the world’s leading provider of diversified correctional, detention, community reentry, and location monitoring services, announced today that it has been designated a 2014 Top Military Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs. The Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list is drawn from a sample of 5,000 of the largest companies in the United States. Criteria used in the selection process include the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies toward National Guard and Reserve service.
This important recognition, based on statistical data gauging GEO’s ability to hire and retain veterans, serves to help military-experienced job seekers and veterans identify the top employers to target for civilian careers.
Stephen V. Fuller, GEO’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources, said: “The GEO Group is proud to be designated a 2014 Top Military Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs. Based on GEO’s close knit culture that honors dignity and respect, and its organizational structure, we are proud to provide opportunities for veterans to transition their expertise into The GEO Group family.”
Since 2004, GEO has hired over 4,000 U.S. Military Veterans, and today more than 10% of GEO’s workforce is comprised of service members. GEO selects a veteran of the quarter and has a dedicated website for veterans. The website provides an innovative tool which enables veterans to find the perfect job match based on their military title and skill set.
