Second Year of Gold Military Friendly Status
ALPHARETTA, Ga., November 11, 2023 – Stryten Energy has been named a 2024 Gold Military Friendly® Employer in the annual list from militaryfriendly.com, which recognizes companies that create sustainable and meaningful career paths, community outreach, brand enthusiasm and enduring partnerships that benefit the military community.
Stryten Energy hires military members across every level of the company from the executive management team to the plant floor, with many having progressed through the company via multiple promotions. Military veterans make up approximately six percent of our workforce.
“At Stryten Energy, we value the service of our veterans to our country. We are proud to provide opportunities that allow them to translate the valuable skills and strong work ethic they gained in the military into a great career in the battery business,” said Mike Judd, President and Chief Executive Officer at Stryten Energy. “We are honored to announce on Veterans Day that our veterans-friendly culture and commitment to hiring veterans has been recognized with this 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 2024 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.
“Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employers designation have wholeheartedly invested in comprehensive and impactful initiatives that bring about positive, life-changing results for our valued service members, dedicated military spouses, and esteemed veterans within their ranks. We salute these exemplary employers who raise the bar and understand that hiring military personnel is not merely an act of goodwill, but a testament to a standard that truly embodies sound business wisdom. Their steadfast commitment to integrating military personnel into their workforce not only reflects their compassion, but also underscores their business acumen,” said Kayla Lopez, Senior Director of Military Partnerships at Military Friendly®.
Stryten Energy currently has job openings for military members across numerous U.S. locations, with a dedicated section of its website for military and veteran job seekers here.
“We will always be committed to hiring members of the military community and making them an integral part of our Stryten Energy team,” said Judd.
In addition to seeking out the military community for employment opportunities, Stryten Energy is a proud sponsor of Rivers of Recovery, an innovative, national nonprofit that uses outdoor-based activities to effectively treat symptoms of post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety in combat veterans and active-duty military.
