FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 18, 2020 – Hyundai Motor America has been recognized by VIQTORY as a 2021 Military Friendly® Employer for its long-term commitment to hiring and recruiting military veterans. Only 240 organizations and four automotive companies earned this designation for 2021 – an honor which Hyundai has received seven times.
Hyundai currently employs approximately 1,000 veterans in the U.S., across its corporate headquarters, dealerships and manufacturing plant in Alabama. Utilizing Hyundai’s proprietary website HyundaiCareers.com, dealers hired more than 700 veterans since January 2013.
“Across our entire company, including the dealer network, manufacturing plant in Alabama and corporate headquarters in California, Hyundai maintains a deep respect and gratitude for military veterans and their families,” said David VandeLinde, executive director, Retail Process and After-Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “These individuals have sacrificed so much in service of our country and we are honored that so many have chosen to make Hyundai their next mission.”
VIQTORY is a veteran-owned business that connects the military community to civilian employment. This prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using a variety of data sources. Companies earning the Military Friendly® Employers designation were evaluated using both public and government data sources with responses from a comprehensive survey completed by the employer.
About Military Friendly® Employers
The Military Friendly® Employers list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal contractors nationwide, the input of military employees, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Employers survey from participating companies. The survey questions, methodology, criteria, and weightings were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by Ernst & Young. The survey is administered for free and is open to companies that have hired veterans in the past 12 months. Criteria for consideration can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
