PACCAR Parts has earned the official 2022 Military Friendly Employer designation. The award is based on PACCAR Parts’ efforts to provide rewarding career paths for veterans and by building strong partnerships with organizations like Hiring Our Heroes, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employer designation were evaluated using public data sources and proprietary survey responses. More than 1,000 companies participated in the 2022 Military Friendly survey, which focused on the organization’s ability to meet the criteria for new hire retention, employee turnover, and promotion and advancement of veterans and military employees.
“We value veterans’ experience with cutting-edge technology and their appreciation for the diverse nature of our globalized economy,” said Wibo de Booij, PACCAR Parts director of human resources. “That knowledge and experience, combined with strong interpersonal and leadership skills, are strengths that we are looking for in new employees.”
“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employer 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, Military Friendly, director of military partnerships. “To them, hiring veterans and service members is more than just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.”
