FirstEnergy Honored as a Military Friendly Employer
November 11, 2019
FirstEnergy has been named a Military Friendly® Employer by the publisher of G.I. Jobs®, Stem Jobs and Military Spouse magazines for the ninth time in 11 years.
Our company employs more than 1,550 veterans of the U.S. armed forces – about 10% of our employee population. FirstEnergy exceeded benchmark standards for hiring and onboarding; opportunity and advancement; culture and commitment; support and retention; policies and compliance; and recruiting and sourcing, based on results of an evaluation conducted using public and government data sources and a comprehensive survey.
FirstEnergy’s support of employees during times of military service goes beyond what many other companies provide. For example, during military-service-related leaves of absence, we pay the difference between an employee’s regular FirstEnergy base salary and the military’s base wages.
We’re one of 290 employers across the country to earn this recognition, among more than 8,800 employers evaluated. The full list will be published in the December issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.*
