Progress Residential Earns 2022 Military Friendly Employer Designation
Company is recognized for its commitment to the recruitment and advancement of veterans and servicemembers
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – May 9, 2022 – Progress Residential, the market leader in single-family rental management services, today announced that it has earned the 2022 Military Friendly® Employer designation.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation are evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey designed by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for applicant, new hire retention, employee turnover, and the promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.
“Every day, Progress Residential recognizes and appreciates the hard work and sacrifices made by the men and women of all branches of the U.S. military,” said Brandon Parise, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Progress Residential. “We are honored to receive the 2022 Military Friendly® Employer designation. Our organization is deeply committed to providing well-deserved opportunities to the people who protect our nation.”
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers® designation create and elevate the standard for military programs across the globe. They have collectively invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance the veterans and service members within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, director of military partnerships at Military Friendly®. “To them, hiring veterans and service members is more than just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.”
Progress Residential will be showcased along with other 2022 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
