Miami – January 10, 2024 — Foundever™, a global leader in the customer experience (CX) industry, announced today that it has earned the 2024 Military Spouse Friendly® Employer designation. The recognition reflects the continued efforts of Foundever in creating sustainable and meaningful career paths, community outreach and economic benefits to the military community and their families.
The Military Friendly® Spouse Employers survey takes a detailed look at the lifecycle of military spouse employees: What employers do to attract, hire, and develop them; as well as the policies and practices with which employers support them along the way. Our goal is to help military spouse employees have fulfilling careers.
While much about military life is unpredictable, most military spouses have no difficulty predicting what each move to a new duty station means for their own careers. Roughly one-quarter of spouses will be unemployed and as many as half of those finding jobs will be underemployed.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Recruitment, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“At Foundever, we recognize the incredible value veterans and their families bring to our teams”, said Michelle Parks, COO – North America, Foundever. “Hiring 261 spouses of active duty and veterans this year is just one step in our ongoing commitment to build a supportive, inclusive environment where their skills and talents can thrive. Their service to our country deserves no less.”
“Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employers designation have wholeheartedly invested in comprehensive and impactful initiatives that bring about positive, life-changing results for our valued service members, dedicated military spouses, and esteemed veterans within their ranks, We salute these exemplary employers who raise the bar and understand that hiring military personnel is not merely an act of goodwill but a testament to a standard that truly embodies sound business wisdom. Their steadfast commitment to integrating military personnel into their workforce not only reflects their compassion but also underscores their business acumen,” – Kayla Lopez, Senior Director of Military Partnerships at Military Friendly®
Foundever will be showcased in the 2024 Military Friendly ® Employers in the Winter issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
