Kearney Companies is pleased to announce that corporate partner Louisville & Indiana Railroad (“LIRC”) announced today that it has earned the 2023 Military Friendly® Employer designation.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over a thousand companies participated in the 2023 Military Friendly® survey.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the 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 Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
Louisville & Indiana Railroad Company President, John Goldman, says, “I am proud of the team at LIRC and humbled by being designated as a 2023 Military Friendly Employer. Through our hiring efforts we have and will continue to focus on bringing military veterans into our railroad family to strengthen our team. LIRC feels that hiring veterans is the right thing to do and we remain committed to those that have served.”
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers® designation elevate the standard for military programs globally; they have invested in substantive programs that promote positive outcomes for service members, military spouses, and veterans within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly®. “For these employers, hiring military is more than just the right thing to do; it's a standard that makes good business sense.”
LIRC will be showcased in the 2023 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
