August 15, 2019

WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navient has earned the 2020 “Top 10” Military Friendly Employer designation from VIQTORY, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse Magazine. It is the sixth consecutive year Navient has earned the Military Friendly designation.

“At Navient, we value the service-oriented experience military veterans bring to our company and that translates into a focus on our customers,” said Paul Hartwick, vice president and U.S. Army veteran. “We’re honored to be recognized for our commitment to providing opportunities for military veterans to build meaningful careers here.”

Navient provides veterans with employment opportunities, offers mentoring and development, and raises funds and awareness for veterans.

-- Navient attends several hiring events to reach job-seeking veterans. A specialized veterans career site makes it easy for veterans to find openings that match their background, education and experience. Navient is also member of the Veteran Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring U.S. military veterans and military spouses. -- The employee-led Veterans Resource Group provides recognition, mentoring and resources to employees and families connected to the military. Veterans can take advantage of military leave benefits, job-based training, tuition reimbursement and various development programs. -- Through partners and employees, Navient supports community groups that provide care and resources to service members and veterans.

Since 2003, the Military Friendly Employers list has come to set the standard for organizations to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. The list is created each year based on research using public data sources for more than 8,800 employers nationwide, input from employed veterans and responses to a comprehensive employer-submitted survey.

Navient was recognized among 290 other employers that earned the prestigious Military Friendly designation. As a Military Friendly Top 10 Employer, Navient is among other guidon bearers for military/ veteran programs and initiatives, setting the standard for other designations and programs that continue to improve every year.
