RISMEDIA, June 7, 2010—For the second consecutive year, RE/MAX is listed among the top 2% of U.S. companies that have made a commitment to America’s veterans and military families. RE/MAX was named to the “2010 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer” list by G.I. Jobs magazine. RE/MAX was the only real estate company represented in the Top 100, a list that was narrowed down from more than 5,000 companies that have generated at least $500 million in revenue.
Companies were judged on criteria that included the percentage of new hires with prior military service, and also their policies toward National Guard and Reserve service. Many RE/MAX employees and top ranking officers, including Dave Liniger, have served on active duty in the military.
According to the company, RE/MAX promotes military hiring to its offices through the innovative employment program, Operation RE/MAX. Along with helping military personnel find jobs in real estate, RE/MAX has also made a specific commitment to helping military spouses and has been featured on the “Top Ten Military Spouse Friendly Employer” list by Military Spouse magazine the last three years.
“RE/MAX is a global company built on the American values of our nation; liberty, independence and hard work. Members of the American military and their families make sacrifices for our country everyday and we are proud of RE/MAX’s efforts to provide employment to American veterans and support to military families,” said Henry F. Weber, President & Regional Director of RE/MAX of New York, Inc.
As a result of the success of the program, RE/MAX was honored with the Office of the Secretary of Defense Exceptional Public Service Award in 2007. The prestigious award is one of the highest given to civilians, and was presented to Gail Liniger, Vice Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder, in a special Pentagon ceremony.
RE/MAX is joined on the G.I. Jobs Top 100 list by other high-profile organizations such as ITT, General Electric, Bank of America and Waste Management. This list is featured in the magazine’s May 2010 issue.
