DALLAS — The Army & Air Force Exchange Service has been named a 2016 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer by Victory Media, publisher of “G.I. Jobs” and “Military Spouse” magazines.

The 13th annual list ranks companies based on their long-term commitment to hiring veterans, retention programs for veterans, and policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

“The Exchange embraces the experience and perspective that veterans bring to the table,” said Exchange Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Leigh Roop. “The Exchange exemplifies family serving family, and our associates who served and sacrificed for our country truly know our customers better than anyone.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Military Friendly Employer and remain committed to recruiting and hiring from this qualified pool of candidates,” he said.

The Exchange hired 1,208 veterans worldwide in 2015, and 10 percent of the Exchange’s 35,500 associates are veterans.
To recruit veterans, the Exchange partners with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, the Wounded Warrior Project, Operation Warfighter Program, White House Joining Forces and Feds Hire Vets.

The Exchange, which was ranked No. 40, up from No. 71 in 2015, was featured along with other companies earning the Military Friendly Employer designation in “G.I. Jobs” magazine’s December edition.
