To determine which companies should make the list, the Military Times conducted a rigorous survey to identify employers that support veterans and their families.
Over 35 percent of Vectrus employees have prior military experience, and Sr. Vice President and Chief Human Resources Office Frank Peloso says the company hopes to grow that number.
“We believe that veterans bring valuable experience and skills to our organization,” said Peloso, adding that they hope the award “gets the attention of those veterans currently looking to start a new career. Being selected for this ranking demonstrates our commitment to hiring veterans and their families.”
Vectrus also recently received the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation from Victory Media, which distinguishes companies who promote strong job opportunities, hiring practices and retention programs for transitioning service members seeking civilian employment.
Vectrus provides facility and logistics services, and information technology and network communication services to U.S. government customers. Headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo., Vectrus employs 5,600 people at its 143 locations in 18 countries. In 2016, Vectrus generated sales of $1.2 billion.
