Westgate Resorts Named “Most Valuable Employer”

The popular timeshare group Westgate Resorts has received the honor of Most Valuable Employer for the military by Civilianjobs.com.

As mentioned previously on TheTimeshareAuthority.com, back in March Westgate was one of few companies named as a finalist for this award. By winning this award, Westgate is recognized by the U.S. military as a company that is committed to helping veterans transition into civilian life.

Westgate’s COO and Captain USAFR Mark Waltrip commented, “We are honored to receive this prestigious award. We deeply respect the immense sacrifice that our men and women in uniform give to our country. They understand the importance of service, honor, and integrity, and they bring a high level of leadership and technical skills that add tremendous value to our organization.”
All companies based in the U.S. were eligible for the Most Valuable Employer. Finalists were rated on a variety of categories including: recruiting, training plans, and retention.

CEO of Bradley-Morris, Inc.—parent company of Civilianjobs.com—Sandra Morris said, “There are winners on both sides of these awards. First, the employers who are being recognized as MVEs for employing such high-value, military-experience employees. Secondly, the military job seekers are also winners. Civilianjobs.com received a record number of applications for the MVE awards this year and I am very pleased to see the pool of career opportunities for our veterans continue to grow.”

This month, Westgate is featured in Civilianjob.com’s military newspaper, Military Transition News. Later this week, Westgate Resorts will also be recognized by Civilianjobs.com in an article for Armed Forces Day on May 17, 2014.
