IRVINE, Calif. — The Exchange, Safeway and Walmart were among the companies identified as the nation's top veteran-friendly companies by the U.S. Veterans Magazine last week. The publication released the results of its 2013 evaluation of the nation's top veteran-friendly companies, which also included 3M, the Coca-Cola Company, Kellogg Co., Novartis, Sears Holdings and Target, following a poll of Fortune 1000 companies.
“It is our firm belief that veterans possess the character, discipline and skills that every business can profit from,” stated Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher of the U.S. Veterans Magazine. “This magazine was created to support our troops, and we at USVM are proud to recognize other businesses that are also making veterans a priority.”
The annual review is an evaluation of the nation's employers, initiatives, government agencies and educational institutions. The goal of the annual evaluations is to not only bring the latest information and guidance to readers, the publication stated, but also to encourage active outreach and diversity policies among corporations and government agencies.
The lists were compiled from market research, independent research, diversity conference participation and survey responses that were performed by DiversityComm’s agents and/or affiliates. This year, more than 250 companies and institutions participated.
The results are published in the summer issue of the U.S. Veterans Magazine, featuring Bill Cosby as the cover story and available on newsstands on Aug. 15.
