Werner Enterprises recently was named to U.S. Veterans Magazine's Best of the Best Top Veteran Friendly Companies for the third year in a row.
The Best of the Best for employers list is selected annually after U.S. Veterans Magazine polls hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies on veteran outreach efforts and accessibility. Finalists are selected based on each company's policies that support equal access, advancement and inclusion of all individuals.
As a military friendly employer, Werner has hired more than 9,300 veterans since 2011, more than 480 veteran spouses since May 2013, and more than 5,000 veterans have enrolled in Werner's apprenticeship program. Werner has pledged to hire 2,000 veterans in 2016.
