Vectrus has been included in Victory Media’s annual Military Friendly Employers list in recognition of the company’s employment opportunities for retired service members.

Chuck Prow, Vectrus president and CEO, said in a statement released Thursday at least 35 percent of Vectrus’ employees have a military background.

“Veterans’ military experience provides valuable leadership skills and an understanding of our clients’ needs,” added Prow, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017.

Vectrus, which first received the Military Friendly Employer status in 2014, earned the 2017 designation after it completed a data-driven survey that EY tested for Victory Media.

The survey rates each company’s performance across six categories that include hiring and onboarding, opportunity and advancement, support and retention, culture and commitment, recruiting and sourcing as well as policies and compliance.

Victory Media is the publisher of the Military Spouse and G.I. Jobs magazine.
