Published on : Friday, November 11, 2016

southwest-airlinesSouthwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) announced today it has been recognized as a Military Friendly® Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. This is Southwest’s eighth consecutive year on the list (2010-2017).

 

“To be recognized as a Top Military Friendly Employer for eight years in a row is something we are very proud of,” said Julie Weber, Vice President People at Southwest Airlines. “With more than 7,000 veterans currently in our ranks, we are committed to hiring and retaining these men and women of honor. The qualities they possess are invaluable to our workforce, from their leadership skills to their Warrior Spirits. We couldn’t be prouder to have them as a part of the Southwest Family.”

 

This award seeks to recognize companies with active efforts to employ members of the military. As an award recipient, Southwest is committed to providing meaningful employment to military members through various recruitment efforts, such as career fairs and military job boards. Additionally, the airline partners with many organizations to help veterans integrate from the military back into the workforce.

 

Southwest Airlines will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs magazine, the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.

 

The Military Friendly Employers list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal contractors nationwide, input of military employees, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly Employers survey from participating companies. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weightings were developed by Victory Media with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers.
