Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP) today announced it was named a 2024 Military Friendly® Employer by VIQTORY, a company that connects the military community to civilian employment and educational opportunities. This is the tenth consecutive year Ameriprise has earned the distinction in recognition of its commitment to creating meaningful career paths, community outreach, brand enthusiasm and enduring partnerships with the military community.
“We understand and appreciate the value veterans bring to the workplace, including their leadership, passion for service, dependability and teamwork,” said Kelli Hunter Petruzillo, Executive Vice President, Human Resources at Ameriprise. “We’re proud of our veterans and are honored by the continued recognition of our unwavering commitment to support service members in their post-military careers.”
To create the Military Friendly Employers lists, VIQTORY evaluated companies using both public data sources and survey responses from participating employers. A combination of the organization’s survey score and an assessment of its ability to meet certain thresholds of veterans and military employees for various categories, including recruitment, new hire retention, employee turnover, and promotion and advancement, determined the rating.
“Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employers designation have wholeheartedly invested in comprehensive and impactful initiatives that bring about positive, life-changing results for our valued service members, dedicated military spouses, and esteemed veterans within their ranks,” said Kayla Lopez, Senior Director of Military Partnerships at Military Friendly®. “We salute these exemplary employers who raise the bar and understand that hiring military personnel is not merely an act of goodwill but a testament to a standard that truly embodies sound business wisdom.”
Ameriprise has a long-standing history of supporting veterans and partnered with Dalton Education in 2022 to create a first-to-market Certified Military Financial Advisor™(CMFA) certification. Advisors who earn the certification are equipped with knowledge and expertise to help military members maximize resources and achieve their financial goals with confidence.
