Now, to be able to recognize the best of these employers is very rewarding.”

The Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military 2009 was open to all U.S.-based companies. The winners and finalists were selected based on surveys in which employers outlined their 2009 recruiting, training and retention plans that best serve military service members and veterans.

“I congratulate both the MVE finalists and winners,” said Bill Basnett, VP Operations of CivilianJobs.com. “While there are many companies that hire military as a core talent acquisition strategy, to combat baby boomer attrition of skilled workers, and to assist in their diversity hiring, the Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military stand apart from the rest.”
