OREANDA-NEWS. May 26, 2016. Hyundai Motor America was recognized by CivilianJobs.com, where America’s military connects with civilian careers, as one of the 2016 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military®. Hyundai was the only automaker to receive the honor this year.  

“CivilianJobs.com was pleased to learn of Hyundai’s past and present veteran hiring initiatives,” said Garrett Reed, Branch Manager of CivilianJobs.com. “In addition to targeting veterans specifically via their careers web site (www.hyundaicareers.com), their Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military® survey outlined ways in which Hyundai nurtured and grew their Hyundai VET (Veteran Employment Transition) program as well as their recently launched Employee Resource Group targeted towards veterans. I want to personally thank Hyundai for its outstanding dedication to our country’s military personnel as it seeks out and hires veterans who will contribute their talents to Hyundai and the automotive industry as a whole.”

In 2016, the MVE recognition was open to all U.S.-based companies. The winners were selected based on surveys where employers outlined their recruiting, training and retention plans that best serve military service members and veterans.

“Hyundai respects our veterans and military personal for dedicating their lives to our country,” said Frank Ferrara, Executive Vice President, Customer Satisfaction, Hyundai Motor America. “We will continue to help America’s veterans and military personal transition seamlessly into civilian careers through recruiting, training and retention plans.”
