DETROIT (JANUARY 16, 2017) — Strategic Staffing Solutions (S3), an international, woman-owned, $321 million IT and business services corporation based in Detroit, announced today that it has earned the 2017 Military Spouse Friendly Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs, STEM Jobs, and Military Spouse.
First published in 2003, Military Spouse Friendly Employers is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans and their families today. Each year, the list of Military Spouse Friendly Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.
Strategic Staffing Solutions was also named a Military Friendly Employer for 2017, for the third year running.
“Strategic Staffing Solutions is committed to hiring military and military spouse talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the right thing to do for veterans and their families who have served our country, but it’s also the right thing to do for business,” said Founder and CEO Cynthia Pasky. “We know that military veterans and their spouses are among the best and brightest thinkers; they are quick learners, adapt easily, build solid relationships, and have strong ethics.”
Supporting veterans and their spouse’s ties into Strategic Staffing Solutions’ four core pillars of:
- Setting the bar high for what a company should do
- Creating jobs
- Offering people an opportunity to succeed and change their station in life
- Making community investment and corporate citizenship core parts of our business
“Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly Employer designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media. “Our Military Friendly Employers have moved beyond answering ‘why hire military?’ They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers.”
Strategic Staffing Solutions will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Spouse Friendly Employers in the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
Military Spouse Friendly Employer Designation Methodology
Strategic Staffing Solutions was evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in 2017 Military Spouse Friendly Companies survey. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Spouse Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
