Date: November 8, 2012
CLEVELAND … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton
Corporation today announced the company has been named to
the G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list for
the fifth consecutive year.
The G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Employers® list functions
as the primary benchmark of corporate recruiting programs
aimed at veterans.
"At Eaton, we value the contributions and are proud of the
men and women who have served our country and are now
making daily contributions to the continued success of our
company," said Alexander M. Cutler, Eaton chairman and
chief executive officer. "Their outstanding leadership
skills and ethics have added to our solid foundation for
Eaton's continued growth as a Fortune 200
The criteria by which Eaton was evaluated included the
strength of the company's military recruiting efforts, the
percentage of new hires with previous military service,
retention efforts, and company policies toward National
Guard and Reserve service.
"Hiring America's military veterans is a smart business
decision," said Rich McCormack, publisher of G.I. Jobs.
"Sure, it's patriotic to hire military, but that's not why
corporate America does so. Companies on the Top 100
Military Friendly Employers list understand how military
knowledge, training and real-world experience positively
affect their bottom line."
