Hormel recognized for employing veterans

Hormel Foods Corp. is still considered a good place to work if you’re a military veteran.

Hormel announced Thursday it has been recognized for the third consecutive year on the Military Times Best for Vets: Employers list.

The company ranked No. 68 on this year’s list, which evaluates the many factors that make a company a good fit for military veterans and spouses.

“We are honored to receive this recognition for our veteran employment initiatives,” said Larry C. Lyons, senior vice president of human resources, Hormel, in a press release. “The skills, training and work ethic of veterans have proved to be an asset to our company.”

To compile the ranking, Military Times focused on culture and policies that cater to military veterans when conducting and scoring the sixth-annual survey.

Hormel was also recognized as a 2015 Military Friendly Employer by G.I. Jobs magazine.
