Bozzuto Awarded 2016 Military Friendly Employer Designation

Bozzuto announced that for the fourth year in a row, the company has received the Military Friendly® Employer designation. The recognition, based upon weightings and methodology established by Victory Media, evaluates the strength of military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, and company policies toward National Guard and Reserve Service.

Bozzuto was founded in 1988 by three partners, of which two are veterans – Chairman Tom Bozzuto and former Vice Chairman John Slidell.

“The Military Friendly Employer designation is one in which both my father and I take great pride in,” said Toby Bozzuto, President & CEO, Bozzuto. “It is our honor to offer veterans, as well as their spouses, meaningful and fulfilling career opportunities in an environment in which they can learn and grow."

"Companies that have earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer award have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful careers for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and a Navy Reserve veteran. “Our Military Friendly® Employers are moving the needle beyond answering ‘why hire military’ — they are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® educators to translate military competencies into civilian jobs.”

Now in its 13th year, Military Friendly® Employers is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. Each year, companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Advisory Board consisting of leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community.
