FAIRFAX, Va., Nov 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ManTech International Corporation (NASDAQ:MANT) (www.mantech.com), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions for mission-critical national security programs, announced today that the company has been named to G.I. Jobs'2011 Military Friendly Employers® list. ManTech is ranked second on the 100-company list, up from fifth for 2010. It is the fifth straight year the company has been named in the top 10 for its military veteran hiring practices.
G.I. Jobs compiled its list from a sample of 5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Criteria included the strength of a company's military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, and each company's policies toward National Guard and Reserve service.
"We are extremely pleased to be recognized as one of the top military-friendly employers," said ManTech President and CEO George J. Pedersen. "ManTech highly values the unique technical and leadership skills military veterans bring to the workforce, because they provide a strong foundation for careers that further support our nation's security and prosperity. The contributions that these men and women have made to our nation's security give them the knowledge and experience necessary to best support our defense and intelligence customers."
ManTech actively recruits military veterans to fill a number of positions, particularly those in logistics and supply-chain management, cyber security, systems engineering, intelligence analysis, software / IT support, space and satellite communications, and other key technologies. Approximately 50 percent of ManTech's current employees are veterans or have military backgrounds. Many of them continue to serve in the U.S. National Guard and Reserves during their tenure with the company. ManTech was named to Military Times Edge's "Best Employers for Vets" list earlier this year, ranking seventh on the list of 50 companies. In 2009, ManTech's support of military veterans garnered recognition that included the Patriot Award for extraordinary support to the U.S. National Guard and Reserves and a Most Valuable Employer for the Military from CivilianJobs.com.
