Hillier Ignite is very proud to announce that ADS, Inc., the company founded and led by Luke Hillier was just ranked in the top 1 percent of military friendly employers in the United States. ADS, Inc., the world’s premier equipment sourcing and logistics specialist to the military, law enforcement and first-responders, today announced that it has been recognized as a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® for 2014 by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse. The rankings are based on criteria including long-term commitment to military hiring and training and include many of the country’s most-respected companies. They are featured in the December issue of G.I. Jobs and online at www.militaryfriendly.com.
“ADS experiences the skill, dedication and mission-driven commitment of the men and women of our military 365 days per year and it sets the standard for how we run our company,” said Luke Hillier, Chairman and CEO of ADS. “It’s our privilege to bring service members into ADS where their training, experience and attitude greatly contribute to our continual drive for excellence.”
ADS’ top 50 ranking in both the Military Friendly and Military Spouse Friendly Employer categories places it in the top 1 percent of the over 5,000 U.S. companies with annual revenues of at least $500 million that are eligible for this distinction. Factors driving ADS’ selection included its high percentage of new hires that are transitioning military members/veterans (45%), its veteran outreach programs, on-the-job and managerial training programs for veterans and military spouses, and community service programs.
The Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® and Top 100 Military Spouse Friendly Employer rankings are based on survey data from over 5,000 companies using survey methodology created by an advisory board comprised of leaders in the military recruitment community and verified by Ernst & Young LLP. Commencing its 11th year, the rankings are a leading resource for service members and spouses transitioning to civilian employment.
