Olympus Named a Military Friendly Employer for Fourth Consecutive Year

Rusty Segan, Global Chief Medical Officer, MD, MBA, FACS, Olympus Corporation and a former United States Army General, Trauma and Critical Care Surgeon is proud of the company’s support of veteran employees.

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., (September 21, 2020) – Olympus Corporation of the Americas announced today that it has earned the 2021 Military Friendly® Employer designation.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Hundreds of companies participated in the Military Friendly Employers portion of the 2021 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. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.

Olympus Corporation of the Americas is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the “right thing to do” but is also complementary to the success of our business.

“Olympus is honored to be recognized as a Military Friendly Employer and proud to receive this designation for a fourth straight year,” said Ross "Rusty" Segan, Global Chief Medical Officer, MD, MBA, FACS, Olympus Corporation and former United States Army General, Trauma and Critical Care Surgeon. “From personal experience, I know Veterans and military service members bring a valuable and unique set of skills to our work force. We stay true to our veterans because their tremendous leadership qualities, results-driven background, and integrity of character align so well with our Core Values. We are proud to support the wellness and happiness of our veteran employees and encourage any Veterans seeking employment to visit our Careers site and apply for one of our openings."

“Companies that have earned this designation have invested in substantive programs to recruit, retain and advance veterans within their organizations,” said Josh Rosen, Director of Military Friendly. “To them, hiring veterans isn’t just the right thing to do. It’s good for business.”

Olympus will be showcased along with other 2021 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
