Energy Northwest is proud to announce that it has earned the Military Friendly Employer designation for 2022. This is the seventh year in a row that EN earned this designation.
“Veterans come to Energy Northwest with a diverse set of experiences, technological expertise and well-developed leadership skills,” said CEO Bob Schuetz, who is also a retired captain from the U.S. Navy. “The contributions of our veterans and their experiences make our tremendous workforce even stronger. Their diverse perspectives and experiences help to stimulate the innovation that is necessary for us to continue our excellence journey.”
More than 30% of EN’s employees are veterans.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly Employer designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over a thousand companies participated in the 2022 Military Friendly survey. Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers ® designation create and elevate the standard for military programs across the globe, they have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance the veterans and service members within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly. “To them, hiring veterans and servicemembers is more than just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.”
Energy Northwest will be showcased along with other 2022 Military Friendly Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
