Penn Medicine @ Work

2016_MFE_Logo_HRPenn Medicine Military Friendly® Employer 

Penn Medicine has earned the 2016 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse. Companies competed for the elite Military Friendly® Employer title by completing a data-driven survey, with data independently tested by EY (Ernst & Young) based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media and its Advisory Board. 

Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies, such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service. 

“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 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.”
