Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced this week that it has been designated a 2013 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® by G.I Jobs. This marks the first time the company has been included in the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list, which was compiled from a data-driven survey sample of 5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million.
Criteria for selection to the Top 100 list included the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
“Gulfstream appreciates the tremendous contributions our veterans make to this country and our company,” said Larry Flynn, Gulfstream president.
“We at Gulfstream have five core values that we support: pride, respect, teamwork, integrity and stewardship. Those same values are esteemed by the military and therefore, demonstrated by its veterans, making them ideally suited to the culture of our company.”
Gulfstream aggressively seeks to hire “military alumni” who are smart, innovative, responsible, team players and team builders, common traits for those who have worn the country’s uniform, Flynn said.
Gulfstream was recognized for its support of military veterans and National Guard and Reserve members with its military recruitment program. This program provides outreach and professional development opportunities for employees with military backgrounds and assists them with the transition from the military to a corporate culture.
