About Military Friendly® Employers

The Military Friendly® Employers list is created each year based on
extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal
contractors nationwide, input of military employees and responses to the
proprietary, data driven Military Friendly® Employers survey from
participating companies. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and
weightings were developed with the assistance of an independent research
