Los Angeles, 2016-Dec-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — CBRE Group, Inc. has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. This is the sixth year in a row CBRE has been recognized by Victory Media for its military friendly practices.
“At CBRE, we are committed to creating career opportunities for military talent and value the skills and leadership qualities that are deeply ingrained in individuals with current and prior experience in the U.S. military,” said Grayson Gill, CBRE Chief Operating Officer, Asset Services and Co-Executive Sponsor for the CBRE Military network group.
“CBRE recognizes that recruiting from the military community can lead to strategic competitive advantage,” said Scott Reppert, Managing Director, Global Workplace Solutions and Co-Executive Sponsor for the CBRE Military network group. “We are honored to be recognized for the sixth year in a row for our commitment to hiring military talent.”
First published in 2003, the list of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2017 Military Friendly® Companies survey. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military 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.
“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.”
CBRE will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and the January 2017 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, as well as on MilitaryFriendly.com.
