July 3, 2018, LOUISVILLE, KY – Brown-Forman was named one of the best employers for veterans by Military Times, the trusted source for independent news and information for service members and their families. This is Brown-Forman Corporation’s second year making the “Best for Vets: Employers” list in the ranking’s nine year history.
“Brown-Forman is honored to be included on the list of best employers for veterans for the second year in a row. It shows that we are committed to implementing programs that are necessary to recruit, hire, support, and develop military veterans and their spouses. Veterans have done so much for all of us and we are proud to do our part in supporting them,” said Mike Keyes, Brown-Forman, chief corporate affairs officer and the executive sponsor of the Veteran’s Employee Resource Group.
Rankings were developed based on the answers that companies provided to questions about their recruiting of people connected to the military; company policies related to veterans, reservists and their families; and the organization’s culture. Military Times invited companies across the U.S. to take part in the rigorous, more-than-90-question survey.
Rankings evaluate companies’ culture, veteran recruiting, veteran policies, and accommodations for members of the National Guard and reserves. The standards are objective, rigorous, and editorially independent. As a result, transitioning service members recognize them as the most trusted veteran job rankings and have come to rely on Best for Vets Employers to aid their transition to civilian life.
“The companies on the Military Times Best for Vets list earned their rankings through determined efforts to recruit and support service members, veterans, and military families,” said George Altman, Military Times, editor in charge of the rankings. “These efforts deserve recognition from the country and should get the attention of veterans looking for a new career.”
The rankings are published in a special Military Times magazine and online at MilitaryTimes.com, as well as ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com. For the full Best for Vets: Employers 2018 rankings go to https://rebootcamp.militarytimes.com/rankings/.
