Werner recently was named to U.S. Veteran Magazine’s 2015 Best of the Best Top Veteran Friendly Companies list.
“As an organization, we make it a priority to create career opportunities for men and women transitioning from military to civilian life,” said Derek Leathers, president and COO. “To be recognized as a leader in support of our veterans is high praise for our military hiring program.”
As a military friendly employer, Werner has hired more than 6,200 veterans and more than 290 veteran spouses in the last three years, surpassing the pledge it made in 2012 under the White House campaign Joining Forces to hire 1,000 veterans per year for the next five years. Werner has pledged to hire 2,200 veterans and 200 veteran spouses in 2015.
U.S. Veteran Magazine’s Best of the Best annual review is an evaluation of the nation's employers, initiatives, government agencies and educational institutions. The publication polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for this year’s evaluations.
