(Corvallis, Oregon – Jan. 2, 2018) Samaritan Health Services is proud to announce that it has earned the 2018 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media.
First published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is a powerful resource for veterans. Each year, the list is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.
“Samaritan Health Services hires veterans because of the great skills they bring with them,” said Gail Worden-Acree, vice president of human resources at Samaritan Health Services. “Military training is mission-focused and Samaritan is a mission-driven organization.”
More than 200 companies were evaluated for the 2018 Military Friendly® Employer designation using public data sources and survey responses. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for applicants, new hire retention, employee turnover, promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.
As a Military Friendly® Employer, Samaritan has proven its commitment to hiring military talent and knowing first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the right thing to do, but the right thing for the organization, Worden-Acree added.
