Averitt Express was recently named as a Military Friendly Employer and a Military Spouse Friendly Employer by Viqtory, a veteran-owned small business that connects the military community to employers. The recognition is based on a survey of nearly 2,000 companies.
According to Viqtory, “Military Friendly Employers strive toward and succeed in the areas that matter most in helping veterans and other members of the military community make the transition from the military to satisfying employment in the civilian world. Having the designation shows that your organization is better for veterans, with the hiring, retention, advancement and employee development programs in place to help them reach their career goals.”
Approximately 15% of Averitt’s workforce served in the armed forces, including many members of its leadership.
“Military veterans are a perfect fit for our culture because they are well-acquainted with professional image, teamwork and service,” said Averitt Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gary Sasser, who served in the Marine Reserves. “We’re proud to be the career home of many veterans throughout our network, and we know that our team is stronger when we hire veterans.”
