Southern Company Saluted Again – Ranked 4th Nationally in 'Best for Vets'
Southern Company has been ranked fourth nationally on Military Times' debut "Best for Vets" top 50 employer list. It was the only utility in the top 30.
To recognize employers that are actively recruiting veterans, the Military Times magazine "EDGE" invited Fortune 1000 companies, military contractors and members of the General Services Administration 250 List to share their military recruitment practices and policies through an online survey.
Responses were evaluated based on four criteria: recruiting, training and mentoring, Reserve policies, and corporate culture.
