For the fourth consecutive year, Associated Bank has been named one of Military Times’ 2020 Best for Vets: Employers. Associated is among 144 companies nationwide.
Best for Vets: Employers rankings were based on a voluntary survey that included more than 100 questions seeking detailed information based on the individual company’s policies and practices related to veteran recruitment and retention, support for translation of military skills to civilian credentials, support for military spouse employment and accommodations for members of the National Guard and reserves.
“Associated Bank is honored to be recognized as a top employer for veterans,” said Callie Davis, diversity and inclusion talent consultant, Associated Bank. “We recognize the valuable skills veterans bring to our organization and we are committed to veteran hiring, development and retention.”
Associated supports veterans and military personnel through a variety of benefits, such as leave time and retention of benefits and full pay for colleagues on training and active military leave. In addition, the Deployment Trip Program provides financial assistance to colleagues visiting an immediate family member at their deployment site.
“Best for Vets is editorially independent and focused on culture and policies that cater to military veterans,” said Andrew Tilghman, executive editor at Military Times. “It has become the most trusted resource for transitioning veterans and a coveted honor for employers across the country.”
