Amentum Recognized as Number One Military Friendly Company
Amentum has outranked 68 other organizations to earn the number one Military Friendly Company award for 2021.
Speaking about the award, Amentum Chief Executive Officer John Vollmer, a Potomac Officers Club member and 2020 Wash100 winner, touted the company’s commitment to supporting the missions of military customers, as well as its focus on partnerships with veteran-owned small businesses and the contributions of military spouses.
Military Friendly ratings are owned and produced by service-disabled, veteran-owned small business Viqtory and evaluated by Ernst & Young, Amentum said Tuesday.
The designation is awarded to companies that demonstrated excellence in at least three of four critical areas of commitment to the military community. The criteria place importance on a company’s commitment to recruiting, hiring and training of both veterans and military spouses; implementing supplier diversity programs; and championing military consumer protections and having a positive brand reputation in the military community.
Of these four areas, Amentum was recognized as the company with the best military friendly supplier diversity programs.
“Military Friendly Companies list represents a growing number of organizations who are taking a holistic approach on engagement, retention and support in the military and service member community,” according to Kayla Lopez, director of military partnerships at Viqtory.
Amentum beat companies like UnitedHealth Group and Verizon, which earned the number two and three Military Friendly Company awards, respectively. Comcast NBCUniversal, Combined Insurance, Hilton, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, PenFed Credit Union and Dominion Energy round out the top ten list.
All 2021 Military Friendly Companies will be featured in the March issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and on MilitaryFriendly .com.
