Arlington, VA., November 7, 2022 – Military Times announced its 2022 Best for Vets: Employers rankings today.
This year, 230 organizations submitted responses to the Best for Vets: Employers survey that was fielded from May through August, and 175 employers made the list. This editorially independent program produces a highly respected analysis of a company’s efforts to recruit, retain, and support current and former service members, military spouses, and military caregivers.

“Military Times continues to set the standard for employer rankings for transitioning service members and veterans. Although often imitated, there is no other list that comes close to Best for Vets: Employers,” says Mort Greenberg, SVP of media solutions at Military Times. “We stand by the rigor and soundness of this survey, which spotlights companies’ employment programs that help transitioning service members excel in their post-military careers.”
Last year, Military Times collaborated with Fors Marsh to update the research methodology and analysis from previous years to provide a streamlined, user-friendly survey experience for participants. The survey was made based on subject matter expert reviews of the survey and rigorous qualitative research, including focus groups and in-depth interviews with Military Times subscribers. FMG designed, deployed, analyzed, and wrote the report for this year’s survey.
The survey captures the areas of greatest importance to transitioning service members, veterans, and their families when looking for an employer. Recruitment and employment practices, as well as retention and support programs, were given the most weight and importance in scoring and final rankings.
“Fors Marsh recognizes the tremendous benefit of hiring military veterans. We’re proud to have had the opportunity to once again partner with Military Times to highlight companies that prioritize the issues important to transitioning service members, veterans, and their families when seeking employment,” said Nicole Togno, Director of Evidence and Insights at Fors Marsh. “Being named a Best for Vets employer can attract some of the very best talent this country has to offer—hands down.”
In its 13th year, Military Times Best for Vets: Employers rankings are based on the results of a voluntary survey that covered the policies and practices that make companies an attractive place to work for current employees and future job seekers within the military community.
