Los Angeles, CA – November 10, 2014 – CBRE Group, Inc. has earned the #53 spot on the 2015 Top 100 Military Friendly® Employers list and designation as a Military Spouse Friendly Employer® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. This is the fourth year in a row CBRE has been recognized by Victory Media for its military friendly practices.
Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a survey that included a benchmark score across key programs and policies, such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
CBRE is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting from the military community can lead to strategic competitive advantage.
“Our CBRE employees with military experience possess many great qualities and skills that make us better as a company,” said Jennifer Ashley, Global Director, Human Resources. “We are proud to provide an environment that welcomes former and current members of the military and their spouses, and we are honored by our recognition as a Military Friendly® Employer and Military Spouse Friendly Employer®.”
Now in its 12th year, Military Friendly® Employers is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. Each year, companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year.
“The 2015 Military Friendly® Employers represent the preeminent tier of companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Sean Collins, Vice President for Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “Our Military Friendly® Employers constitute the group of companies moving the needle and realizing significant benefits by hiring from the military community. This year’s group of companies reported hiring over 155,000 service members and spouses over the last 12 months, representing a 35% increase over last year and an average of 15% of total new hires.”
CBRE will be showcased along with other 2015 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2015 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
