INDIANAPOLIS – Celadon Trucking Services has been named a winner in the 2017 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military competition from RecruitMilitary, a national company helping employers connect with high-quality veterans.

The MVE recognition serves to help military-experienced job seekers identify the top employers to target for civilian careers.

MVEs are selected annually based on those employers whose recruiting, training, and retention plans best serve military service members and veterans.

“Veterans truly represent the finest talent our country has to offer,” said Peter Gudmundsson, president of RecruitMilitary. “Judging by the stature of the businesses that comprise the Most Valuable Employers for Military winners, we can see that organizations thrive when they include veteran hiring initiatives in their human resource strategies.”

The 2017 Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military was open to all U.S.-based companies. Winners were selected from a pool of finalist companies.

In observance of Armed Forces Day, the annual list of MVEs will be released in the May/June issue of RecruitMilitary’s Search & Employ magazine.

 “The men and women who have served in our country's armed forces have unique talents and skill sets that make them a natural fit for the transportation industry,” said Jon Russell, president and chief operating officer of the Celadon Group. “Veterans bring a disciplined work ethic as well as strong collaboration and communications skills acquired through their military service, all capabilities that Celadon Trucking very much values."

Celadon Trucking Services is part of the Celadon Group.
