The TMX Finance® Family of Companies is excited to announce that the Company has earned recognition as a 2019 Military Friendly® Employer.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly Employers portion of the 2019 Military Friendly® Companies survey. Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community.
Otto Bielss, president of the TMX Finance® Family of Companies was thrilled about the recognition stating, “As we continue our TMX Project SERV (Securing Employment for Respected Veterans) commitment to serving those who have served the many communities where we live and do business, we are proud to be recognized on the Military Friendly® Employers list for 2019. We strive to provide the tools, resources, and support our veterans, veteran spouses, and active duty military team members need for a smooth transition to a successful business career with our Company.”
The TMX Finance® Family of Companies will be showcased along with other 2019 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2019 issue of Military Spouse® Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
Chief Business Officer Ted Helgesen is the champion behind the Company’s veteran hiring commitment and a U.S. Army Veteran, “I gained discipline in the military, I learned the value of a talented team, I acquired a full understanding of commitment, and I learned the virtues of great leadership. I want all of the veterans out there to know that we are proud of our Company and we want them to join us, so that they can come here and thrive. We will value their strong work ethic, feed their passion, teach them new skills, and welcome their commitment to team.”
In 2018, we, as a Company, pledged to hire 100% more U.S. military veterans than in 2017. Through the development programs and benefits we offer, our military team members receive the guidance and support they need to ensure a smooth transition in to the business world. For the past two years, we have received the Patriot Award awarded by the Department of Defense that reflects the many efforts made by our Company to support citizen soldiers when they are called to duty.
We are proud to be recognized as a 2019 Military Friendly® Employer and look forward to growing the TMX Project SERV commitment.
