Unprecedented Detail

“JCTM first applied for the VETS Indexes award in 2022, and unfortunately, we were not selected. When we were offered the benchmarking review to discuss the application and the answers, I jumped on the opportunity to do so.

The benchmarking review showed me where my responses landed us in comparison to other employers. … I gained more insight into how the applications were scored and felt like we would be in a good place for the next year.

In 2023, I am happy to say that JCTM was recognized as a VETS Indexes 5 Star Employer!”

– Steven Smith, Human Resources Officer, JCTM
