The Best Employers for Veterans have been identified in an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 5,000 U.S. veterans (having served in the United States Armed Forces either in the regular military or in the National Guard or military reserves) working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S.
The survey was conducted using several online access panels, providing a representative sample of veterans in the American workforce. Each veteran was asked which firm or institution he or she works for in an open ended question and with an autofill option. The survey was conducted based around companies from all industry sectors with more than 1,000 employees in the U.S. In total, the survey took an average of 5-8 minutes to complete and the field period ran from March to June 2020.
The evaluation was based on two distinct criteria:
1. Direct recommendations – work topics in general: Veterans were asked to give their opinion on a series of statements related to general topics regarding their own employer, for example: atmosphere & development, image, working conditions, salary & wage, workplace, and diversity, as well as a set of topics related specifically to the interests of veterans in the workplace. The rate of agreement/disagreement regarding the statements was measured on a 5 point Likert scale. Additionally, the likelihood of recommending one’s own employer (measured on an 11 point Likert scale) was also asked.
2. Indirect recommendations: Participants were also given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively.
The 150 companies receiving the highest total scores were awarded as the “Best Employers for Veterans 2020”.
