The 2021 Military Times Best for Vets Employers Survey Launches

One of the most trusted surveys recognizing leading companies that hire veterans is now accepting submissions. Employers may submit their company’s submission now through August 15, 2021. 

For more than 10 years, the Military Times Best for Vets: Employers list has been setting the bar for best veteran employers. This year, a new multi-year partnership between Military Times and Fors Marsh Group to develop, conduct and deliver survey results will enhance the overall methodology and submission process for the survey. Military Times has a 75-year pedigree as the independent source of military news. Fors Marsh Group is a leader supporting American companies, the Department of Defense (DOD), and more as a trusted authority on human capital research, strategy, and outreach. Together, both Military Times and Fors Marsh Group will bring an un-matched level of credibility to the final Best for Vets: Employers rankings set to release this Fall.  

“Recruitment is only one part of a successful hiring program. Uncovering companies in the for-profit, non-profit and government sectors that also provide training, mentorship, and retention programs for new hires, especially veterans, sets the stage on what it takes to be a breakout leader among competitors,” said Mort Greenberg, SVP of Media Solutions for Military Times.  

The improved Best for Vets: Employers questionnaire has been developed to provide a research-driven, stakeholder-tested survey that codifies the country’s best employers and organizations for veterans. This year’s survey will offer a more user-friendly format and will provide greater data analysis options for a more comprehensive survey report and insightful findings. 

“FMG looks to hire military Veterans and their family members who have served our country, and we are incredibly proud to help recognize the companies that invest from hiring transitioning military members and benefit from their experience gained while serving in the military,” said Andy Blenkle, FMG’s vice president of Public Service Recruitment. 

Companies who wish to participate may do so by completing the survey here.
