America's Best Employers for Veterans 2023
In its fourth edition, America’s Best Employers for Veterans is a list of the top 150 employers for veterans in the USA. This list is done in partnership with Forbes and is based on an online survey of over 8,000 U.S. veterans who reviewed their own employer and others in their industry.
List of America's Best Employers for Veterans 2023
The Best Employers for Veterans have been identified in an independent survey from a vast sample of over 8,000 U.S. veterans (having served in the United States Armed Forces- either in the regular military or in the National Guard or military reserves) working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S.
The survey was conducted using several online access panels, providing a representative sample of veterans in the American workforce. Each veteran was asked which firm or institution he or she works for in an open-ended question with an autofill option.
Our scoring model is based on open survey data from U.S. Veterans. This data is divided into several assessment dimensions.
On a scale of 0 to 10, respondents indicate how likely they are to recommend their own employer to friends or family – with 0 being the worst and 10 the best.
Respondents indicate the industry they work in. Based on this, each respondent is shown a selection of employers who are active in the given sector. Respondents can then voluntarily recommend or advise against employers from the list.
The employee surveys conducted by Statista R are carried out independently of the potentially awarded employer brands. This reduces distortion of the results that could arise from non-anonymous surveys (e.g. social desirability in response behavior). The focus on willingness to recommend and on general questions about working conditions allows for comparability across heterogeneous sectors.
For data collection, Statista R programs detailed online questionnaires that ask survey participants about work-related topics. Statista R works with leading online access panels worldwide to identify suitable participants. During the survey, the incoming evaluations are checked for quality & validity (interview length, variances, inconsistencies) and sorted accordingly.
For the evaluation, Statista R applies a scoring model that primarily relies on the direct and indirect evaluation of the respondents. This includes both the evaluation of the respondent’s own employer as well as the evaluation of other employers from the same industry.
For each potential award-winning employer brand, the number of employees and the headquarters in the respective country are researched. This step serves as quality assurance and is presented as information in the publication.
