Magazine ranks ADS one of the nation’s Top 25 veteran-friendly companies

U.S. Veterans Magazine has named Atlantic Diving Supply one of the nation’s Top 25 veteran-friendly defense contractors.

The magazine polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies before compiling its list of the nation’s most veteran-friendly defense contractors. It carefully considered each company’s commitment to veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans, spouses and veteran business owners. A total of 68 different companies were recognized, with ADS ranking in the Top 25.

“It’s always an honor to be recognized for being friendly to veterans in your business and employment practices,” said Caitlin Stojanovich, ADS Vice President, Human Strategy. “We don’t hire veterans because it looks good or sounds nice, we do it because veterans have walked miles in our clients’ boots, and we couldn’t do what we do without them.”

Today, about a fifth of the ADS workforce is military veterans who work across every part of the business - from sales to business development to customer loyalty and logistics. Add in the number of military spouses and dependents of active duty or retired military who work here, and the number grows even higher.

“We understand the needs of veterans and their families, the value they bring to our operations, and the challenges they face when they make the transition to the civilian world,” Stojanovich said. “Working here keeps them connected to their military careers in a number of rewarding ways, from keeping active duty service members supplied and equipped to accomplish their missions, to getting involved with volunteer opportunities with our non-profit partners.”

In announcing its list of the nation’s most veteran-friendly employers, the magazine recommends that veterans “shop around” to make their transition from military to civilian a little easier, and find companies like ADS that consistently deliver for veterans – either with their benefits, promotion opportunities, and compensation, or with their overall culture.

We couldn't agree more. Thanks for the nod, U.S. Veterans Magazine!
