Progress Residential Earns Top 10 2023 Military Friendly ® Employer Designation
Company Recognized for Commitment to Veterans and Service Members for Second Consecutive Year
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – November 16, 2022 – Progress Residential (Progress), a national leader in single-family rental property management, announced today that it has earned the Top 10 2023 Military Friendly ® Employer designation.
Progress and other honorees were selected from over a thousand companies that participated in the 2023 Military Friendly ® survey. Institutions earning the Military Friendly ® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from the proprietary survey.
“We are honored to work side-by-side with members of the military community as they look to advance their career after their service, and we are proud to be named a leader in military hiring for the second year in a row,” said Brandon Parise, Chief Human Resources Officer at Progress Residential. “We appreciate the bravery and the sacrifices of U.S. military service members, and we are sincerely grateful when they choose to join our team here at Progress.”
Methodology, criteria and weightings for the designation were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly ® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the 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 Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers® designation elevate the standard for military programs globally; they have invested in substantive programs that promote positive outcomes for service members, military spouses, and veterans within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly ®. “For these employers, hiring military is more than just the right thing to do; it's a standard that makes good business sense.”
Progress Residential will be showcased with all 2023 Military Friendly ® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
