IAP recognized as top military-friendly employer
Cape Canaveral, FL – IAP Worldwide Services, Inc. has been named to the Top 100 Military Employers list compiled by GI Jobs magazine. More than 5,000 companies were considered that have annual revenues of at least $500 million. Being named to the list places IAP in the top 2 percent of all employers that meet the revenue criteria.
More than 25 percent of IAP’s 5,000-person workforce and two-thirds of its Senior Leadership team have a military background. The company has project sites at more than 100 locations in 23 countries supporting military and government operations.
“At IAP we’re in the business of serving the men and women who serve our country, and nobody understands that commitment better than employees who have lived it,” said Steve Gaffney, IAP CEO and Chairman of the Board. “When we can hire someone with a military background, we know we get the kind of leadership and work ethic we need to support our mission.”
This is the seventh consecutive year that GI Jobs released a ranking of military friendly companies. The GI Jobs list is the primary benchmark for corporate recruiting programs aimed at veterans. The list is based on a survey which assesses a company’s long-term commitment to hiring former military, recruiting and hiring efforts and results, policies for Reserve/Guard service members called to active duty, and the presence of special recruitment military programs.
