DES MOINES, Iowa – November 13, 2023 – Berkshire Hathaway Energy has been named a Military Friendly® Employer by VIQTORY for the 15th consecutive year, achieving a Gold rating for 2024.
“Military veterans and active service members provide many specialized skills, including strong leadership capabilities and incredible attention to detail, which are important qualities for employees within the energy sector,” said Scott Thon, Berkshire Hathaway Energy president and CEO. “We are proud to recruit and employ current and former military service members to serve Berkshire Hathaway Energy’s customers and communities.”
Methodology, criteria and weightings 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 the applicant, new hire retention, employee turnover, and promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.
“Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employers designation have wholeheartedly invested in comprehensive and impactful initiatives that bring about positive, life-changing results for our valued service members, dedicated military spouses and esteemed veterans within their ranks,” said Kayla Lopez, senior director of military partnerships, Military Friendly. “We salute these exemplary employers who raise the bar and understand that hiring military personnel is not merely an act of goodwill but a testament to a standard that truly embodies sound business wisdom. Their steadfast commitment to integrating military personnel into their workforce not only reflects their compassion but also underscores their business acumen.”
