GeoStabilization International recently received the esteemed Military Friendly® Award as a Top 10 employer to military servicemen and women. The Military Friendly® employers list is generated each year based on extensive research into more than 8,800 employers nationwide. Their research includes input from employed veterans and a proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® survey from participating organizations, which measures hiring practices, advancement opportunities, culture, and support and retention.
“We are honored to be a part of this elite group of employers who place a high value on our veterans and their families,” states John Hollander, GeoStabilization’s Chief People Officer. “We’ve seen firsthand that some of our most successful employees are military veterans. The qualities we look for in our applicants are not easy to find, and the nature of our work requires people who enjoy hard work and are able to handle high-pressure situations. This is why we first instituted our ‘Veterans First’ hiring policy years ago, which has led to our continued success”.

More recently, VDOT engineers and geologists noticed active movement near the historic slide, and proactively began an emergency rock slope mitigation effort.
