LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 22, 2021--

Windstream, a privately held communications and software company, has been named a Top 10 Military Friendly® Company for 2022.

“We are excited to be named a Top 10 Military Friendly® Company for the first time,” said Mary Michaels, chief human resources officer at Windstream. “Windstream has a strong diversity and inclusion program, and recruiting and retaining military veterans is a key component of that effort.”
