Silver Eagle Houston Earns Four 2022 Military Friendly® Designations

Silver Eagle Distributors Houston, LLC has earned all four 2022 Military Friendly ® ​ designations, including the Military Friendly ® Employer, Military Friendly ® Spouse Employer, Military Friendly ® Supplier Diversity Program and Military Friendly ® Brand. Each award is based on Silver Eagle Houston’s efforts in creating sustainable and meaningful career paths, community outreach, brand enthusiasm and enduring partnerships with veteran and military employees.

This year, Silver Eagle Houston ranked Bronze for the Military Friendly ® Employer designation as a result of the Company’s focus on enhancing established veteran-based initiatives. It is also the first time the Company has earned the Military Friendly ® Brand designation and placed third on the Top Ten Military Friendly ® Brand list.

“Silver Eagle Houston is honored to receive all four 2022 Military Friendly® designations. We are dedicated to building a bright future for veteran and military communities by hiring military veterans and spouses, enhancing diversity programs and supporting each brands’ veteran initiatives,” said John Johnson, President of Silver Eagle Distributors Houston, LLC. “Furthermore, Silver Eagle Houston’s military veteran employees exemplify the highest levels of gratitude, humility and respect – three qualities that are embedded in our country and Company’s culture.”

“Companies earning the Military Friendly® Employers designation create and elevate the standard for military programs across the globe, they have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance the veterans and service members within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly ®. “To them, hiring veterans and service members is more than just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.”

Organizations earning the Military Friendly ® ​designations are evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over thousands of companies participated in all four categories of the 2022 Military Friendly ® survey, yet only a handful of these companies are designated at least one award. Methodology, criteria and weightings are determined by VIQTORY, a military marketing network, with input from the Military Friendly ® ​Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings are determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for applicants, new hire retention, employee turnover, and promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.  Silver Eagle Houston will be showcased along with other 2022 Military Friendly ® ​Companies in the December issue of ​G.I. Jobs ® ​magazine and is currently featured on militaryfriendly.com.
