Military Friendly® is the Go-to Organization for Veterans Transitioning to Civilian Job Market
CHICAGO– Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm has been recognized in the Military Friendly® Company survey with the organization’s Silver designation.
The Military Friendly® Company survey investigates and identifies the organizations whose commitment to serving the military and veteran community is comprehensive in scope and meaningful in terms of actual outcomes and impact. Cushman & Wakefield launched a new Veterans Initiative this year and exceeded Military Friendly® Standard Ratings for hiring and onboarding, opportunity and advancement, culture and commitment, support and retention, policies and compliance and recruiting and sourcing.
“Military Friendly® is the go-to organization for veterans transitioning out of the armed forces and into the civilian job market,” said Frank Stanley, Cushman & Wakefield Veteran Recruiting and Program Manager and U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel. “Their work is enormously valuable, and this recognition in the first year of our program is truly satisfying, yet only the beginning. As we continue to build our Veterans Initiative and recruit the best and the brightest transitioning out of the armed forces, we look forward to furthering our work with Military Friendly®.”
Cushman & Wakefield provides veterans and reservists with a culture that celebrates veteran’s contributions and leadership, rewarding work related to veteran skills and talents and a community of camaraderie. The firm also is active partners with Hiring Our Heroes and the Corporate Fellowship Program, which provides veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses with training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. Additionally, Cushman & Wakefield partners with the Veterans Job Mission, Syracuse University’s Institute for Military Veteran and Families and Operation Finally Home.
