Johnstown, PA, May 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) has been recognized as a 2017 “Best for Vets” employer by Military Times, a source of news and information for service members and their families. The 82 companies on this year’s Best for Vets list are recognized for their commitment to providing opportunities to America’s veterans.
Each year, Military Times embarks on a meticulous, months-long process of evaluating each company’s nearly 100-question survey. The publication includes only the best companies in its rankings. Judging criteria include corporate culture, veteran recruiting, veteran policies, and accommodations for reservists. Many Fortune 500 companies are on the list, which also includes smaller organizations.
“We are fortunate to have exceptional employees who provide the best possible solutions for our clients,” said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., CTC President and Chief Executive Officer. “Employees who are current and former members of the U.S. Armed Services offer unique benefits to both our government and commercial clients – a strong work ethic, leadership skills, technical excellence, and more. Military veterans have earned our nation’s respect and admiration, and they will continue to be an integral part of our CTC team.”
At CTC and its affiliates, 15 percent of the workforce is made up of veterans; 32 percent of all new employees are veterans. In addition to being recognized as a Best for Vets employer, the company has also received numerous awards from Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense organization established to promote cooperation and understanding between Service members and their civilian employers. CTC has earned the ESGR Soaring Eagle Award, Extraordinary Employer Support Award, Above and Beyond Award, Liberty Bell Award, Patriot Award, Pro-Patria Award, and Seven Seals Award. The company was also a semi-finalist for the ESGR Freedom Award. In addition, CTC is a member of the Veteran Jobs Mission (formerly the 100,000 Jobs Mission), a coalition of more than 200 companies committed to hiring one million veterans for private-sector jobs.
