Thanks to a partnership between Military Times and VETS Indexes, investing in companies that invest in our nation’s veterans is not only easy, but likely profitable too.
Launched in July 2017, the Military Times Best for VETS Index includes 36 companies that support the hiring and professional development of veterans. In order to make the index, each company must meet four key requirements. For starters, they must be a Military Times Best for Vets employer for three consecutive years.
“Military Times is proud to provide the independent research for this exciting new index offering. Our Best for Vets Employers rankings of the top companies with veteran initiatives and programs have been the premier listings in this space for a decade,” said David Smith, President of Sightline Media Group, the parent company of Military Times.
Companies on the index must also be publicly traded, have a market capitalization greater than $200 million, and have more than $1 million in average daily trades. That level of scrutiny explains why only three dozen companies — out of more than 2,000 that receive the annual Best for Vets survey — are on the index.
