Western & Southern Life has earned the 2020 "Top 10" Military Friendly® Employer designation from VIQTORY, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse Magazine. This is the eighth consecutive year Western & Southern Life has earned the Military Friendly® designation.
"Western & Southern Life is committed to helping guardsmen, reservists, veterans, and spouses find satisfying and rewarding careers,” said Troy D. Brodie, president of Western & Southern Life’s agency group, the company’s field agent sales force. “Veterans often have the skills needed to be successful in our business: strong leadership skills, a desire to help others and a strong work ethic.”
With 120 offices across the United States, the company's field agent sales force provides middle-income Americans access to life insurance, annuities, investments and retirement strategies.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and 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 the applicant, new hire retention, employee turnover, and promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.
Western & Southern Life will be showcased, along with other 2020 Military Friendly® Employers, in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2020 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on the Military Friendly® website.
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, the 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 firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by Ernst & Young. The survey is administered for free and is open to companies that have hired veterans in the past 12 months. Criteria for consideration can be found at the Military Friendly® website.
