ARLINGTON, VA, May 19, 2022 – Today we are announcing the latest edition of the original veterans hiring survey of top American companies. Military Times Best for Vets: Employers survey is one of the most trusted and rigorous surveys of military veteran hiring practices. Each year the Military Times Best for Vets: Employer survey improves. With our continued partnership with research firm Fors Marsh Group there continues to be no other similar survey that comes close.

Military Times has a 80 year pedigree as the independent source of military news. Fors Marsh Group  is a leader supporting American companies, the Department of Defense (DOD) and more as a trusted authority on human capital research, strategy, and outreach.

Together Military Times and Fors Marsh Group will offer a survey of top US companies that can be used by any organization as a blueprint on how to improve their talent management and talent mindset. “Recruitment is only one part of a successful hiring program. Uncovering companies in the for-profit, non-profit and government sectors that also provide training, mentorship, and retention programs for new hires, especially veterans, sets the stage on what it takes to be a breakout leader among competitors,” said Mort Greenberg, SVP of Media Solutions for Military Times.

Over the last 10 years Military Times has conducted the Best for Vets Surveys ranking employers, colleges, and other institutions that prioritize the needs and success of veterans. Like years past, Military Times will once again be asking companies to submit information about their veteran programs.

The enhanced methodology Fors Marsh Group has created for the survey will continue to be in place for the 2022 survey. Fors Marsh Group will also help analyze and sort the survey findings, providing readers and veterans with a trusted final ranking.

“Our partnership with Fors Marsh Group will bring improved rigor and statistical validation to the rankings that this popular survey reveals,” said Mike Gruss, Editor in Chief of Military Times. “I am excited to recognize this year’s Best for Vets: Employers.”

The Best for Vets: Employers questionnaire has been developed to provide a research-driven, stakeholder-tested survey that codifies the country’s best employers and organizations for veterans. 

“We’re honored to be taking part once again in the Military Times Best for Vets: Employers survey. Hiring veterans just makes good business sense and brings diversity and talent to the workforce,” said Kiersten Downs, Senior Researcher II, Military Workplace Climate at Fors Marsh Group. “It’s a privilege to put our research and statistical expertise to work on a project that benefits our nation’s military and their families. We’re looking forward to learning this year’s results!”
