Publications recognize Hormel for employment record with veterans, recent gradsPublished 9:19am Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Hormel Foods Corp. announced on Tuesday it has been recognized with two top employer accolades, including Military Times EDGE magazine’s Best for Vets Employers list, and Experience’s Best Places to Work for Recent Grads list.
This is the first time that Hormel has been recognized by EDGE on its Best for Vets list, joining 52 other companies selected as those doing the most for service members and their families. This accolade follows the company’s debut on G.I. Jobs magazine’s Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list, which was announced earlier this year.
To determine the Best for Vets Employers list, Military Times EDGE surveyed more than 1,000 major companies and government contractors about their recruiting and hiring policies, social recognition for veterans as well as pay and benefits for reservists. The annual list is considered one of the leading resources for military/veteran recruitment.
The company has also been recognized among the Best Places to Work for Recent Grads by Experience, a ConnectEDU company and the world’s largest education network. Twenty-five employers from across the country were recognized on the 2013 Best Places to Work for Recent Grads list, demonstrating excellence in recruiting, hiring and retaining young professionals. In particular, Hormel was recognized for its outstanding company culture, competitive compensation and benefits package, as well as the opportunity for career growth and diversity.
“It is an honor to be recognized by both of these fine publications,” said David Juhlke, vice president of human resources at Hormel. “For both veterans and recent college graduates, we strive to make Hormel Foods a company where people want to work and build long-term careers. These recognitions are greatly appreciated by our entire organization.”
