How U.S. Veterans Magazine and DiversityComm Evaluate Veteran Inclusion Efforts

Each year, U.S. Veterans Magazine and DiversityComm conduct select evaluations of the nation’s Employers, Supplier Diversity Programs, Industry Leaders, Law Enforcement & Government Agencies and Schools. The evaluations also integrate findings by each magazine independently to identify Top Veteran-Friendly organizations in relation to outreach and accessibility to the veteran population.

The goal of the annual evaluations is not only to bring the latest information and guidance to our readers, but also encourage active outreach and veteran policies among corporations and government agencies. The studies are further designed to assist corporate and government leaders in evaluating their ranking by comparing and contrasting to their peers the success achieved within their industries and their measurement in inclusion.

Methodology

DCI Research Division's Methodology for Evaluating Diversity and Inclusion Efforts

The DCI Research Division reviews surveys and compiles their own independent data. This data includes public records such as 10-K Annual Reports, reader responses, market research, interviews, community, and conference participation. Also considered are the unique efforts made by human resource and supplier managers to actively seek veteran applicants and certified veteran business owners.

Creating or joining a nonprofit veteran group is one method of actively seeking veteran candidates that is also scored. Sponsorships and/or participation at nonprofit veteran conferences also demonstrate commitment to veteran and EEO. DCI participates and distributes its veteran-focused magazines to more than 300 conferences.

As the magazine of choice for conference exposure and community outreach, we are in a unique position to evaluate those who regularly participate and support veterans as a whole.

At the conclusion of the evaluations, the Veteran-Friendly results are announced and published. Vehicles through which results are made public include the print magazines, digital editions, newsletters and press releases. The honorees are listed in alphabetical order and not ranked by number.

If you would like your company or agency to receive a survey invitation via email for the next evaluation, please send your request to [email protected].
