Honor is latest in a string of accolades recognizing company’s veteran-friendly culture.
September 4, 2019 — Chantilly, VA — AMERICAN SYSTEMS, a Virginia Values Veterans (V3)-certified company, has been awarded a place on the 2020 Military Friendly® Employers list. The Military Friendly® Employer 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. This is AMERICAN SYSTEMS’ second consecutive year on the list. The list serves as a guide for veterans and their families to identify the top veteran-friendly organizations in our nation.
“AMERICAN SYSTEMS is proud to support our nation’s military through our long-standing work in national priority programs,” said Peter Smith, AMERICAN SYSTEMS’ President and CEO. “We are equally proud of the many men and women who have served our country and have chosen to “continue the mission” at AMERICAN SYSTEMS.”
Among other criteria, AMERICAN SYSTEMS received high marks by Military Friendly® for its culture and commitment to the veteran community, including AMERICAN SYSTEMS’ in-house Servicemember Outreach And Referral (SOAR) program. SOAR is a platform for the company’s employee-veterans to strengthen the camaraderie, recruitment, onboarding, and morale of fellow veterans through engagement inside and outside the company. Almost half of the company’s new hires in 2018 served in the military at some point.
Previous veteran-friendly awards and listings include the 2018 V3 Breakthrough Award for Most Innovative Veteran Retention Program; the 2018 V3 MVP Award for Most Inspiring Workplace Culture for Veterans; U.S. Veterans Magazine Best of the Best in 2018 and 2019; and Military Times Best for Vets Employers in 2019.
