McLean, VA – (November 10, 2020) – Today, Monster and Military.com released their sixth annual list of companies that excel at hiring and retaining veterans and military families. For the second year in a row, the Best Companies for Veterans puts DynCorp International (DI) at the top of their rankings.
The list is based on nominations by veteran hiring experts and data from the nominees on their hiring and onboarding practices. It focused both on the percentage of 2020 hires that are veterans and the percentage of the company’s total workforce that are veterans.
As a result of recent social change and job market fluctuations, hiring a diverse workforce has gained new significance. The companies on this year’s list all stand out for their diversity hiring efforts, focusing on veterans and military spouses. All of the companies consider veteran hiring part of their overall diversity and inclusion strategy, 70 percent have teams dedicated to veteran hiring, and 90 percent have not changed their veteran hiring plans for 2020, even if they have had to change their overall hiring strategies in response to the pandemic.
DI is one of two veteran-owned businesses to make this year’s list. While its rate of veteran hiring this year has put the firm at the top of the list, its retention rate of 84 percent of last year’s hires is what makes the company really stand out. This level of commitment is evidenced in DI’s goal of improving hiring another 20 percent and increasing military spouse employment by 7 percent.
