Northrop Grumman Honored for Military Employment Efforts

Wes Bush

Northrop Grumman placed ninth on G.I. Jobs’ list of the “Top Military Friendly Employers.”  The ranking marks the third straight year the firm has appeared on the list.

“Northrop Grumman highly values the veterans we support as employees and suppliers because of who they are,” CEO Wes Bush said. “For the man or woman in uniform, notions like honor, duty and responsibility are not quaint ideas, but rather are core to their fundamental values. These virtues make the American veteran as valuable out of uniform as they were in uniform.”

According to GI Jobs, “the 2011 rankings are based on a survey which assesses a company’s long-term commitment to hiring former military, recruiting and hiring efforts and results, policies for Reserve/Guard members called to active duty, and the presence of special recruitment military programs. The pool of companies eligible for the list is approximately 5,000 (minimum of $500 million in annual revenues). Only two percent made the list.”

2010 marked the first year of the firm’s partnership with the Army Spouse Employment Partnership, an organization focused on better “employment opportunities for spouses of members of the armed forces and provide improved job portability for such spouses.”
