LOS ANGELES – (May 6, 2014) – CBRE Group, Inc. was named a Most Valuable Employer (MVE) for Military® for 2014 in the annual list compiled by CivilianJobs.com, one of the largest military-focused recruiting firms in the U.S. The MVE award recognizes companies for recruiting, training and retention plans that best serve military service members and veterans.
Among CBRE’s award-winning veteran initiatives is its program that connects hundreds of prospective and newly hired veteran employees with veteran employees of a similar military background or job function.
“At CBRE, helping veterans to build their careers and successfully make the transition to civilian life is an important component of our corporate culture—and being named a Most Valuable Employer for Military is a true testament of these efforts,” said Jennifer Ashley, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, CBRE. “We are proud to have more than 1,000 military veterans and reservists at every level of our organization.”
The 2014 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military was open to all U.S.-based companies. In addition to being recognized in the May issue of Military Transition News, CivilianJobs.com’s worldwide military base newspaper, winning employers will also be displayed on the CivilianJobs.com website.
“There are two groups of winners today. First are the employers who are being recognized as MVEs,” said Sandra (Sandy) Morris, CEO, Bradley-Morris, Inc., parent company of CivilianJobs.com. “They are winning by hiring high-value military-experienced employees who are helping move their respective businesses forward. But military job seekers are also winners. CivilianJobs.com acknowledged a record number of companies as MVEs this year and I am so excited to see the pool of career opportunities expand for veterans.”
