VIQTORY has recognized GeoStabilization as a Top Ten Military Friendly Employer. Companies earning this designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Hundreds of companies participated in the study with the evaluating methodology, criteria, and weightings 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 Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“We are honored to receive this award, as we recognize how valuable veterans are in the workplace,” said Colby Barrett, CEO of GeoStabilization International. “The values of the veteran community, particularly their dedication to a mission of service, are vital to the work we do. Mitigating dangerous geohazards and protecting the traveling public requires a unique set of skills and a deep dedication level. Our veterans bring this type of work ethic to every job site, every single day. We are grateful to have them as members of the GeoStabilization Family.”
“Companies that have earned this designation have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance veterans within their organizations,” said Josh Rosen, Director of Military Friendly®. “To them, hiring veterans isn’t just the right thing to do. It’s good for business.”
