Penske Is Top Military-Friendly Employer for Fifth Straight Year

For the fifth consecutive year Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics have earned placement on the Victory Media 2016 Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer and Military Spouse-Friendly Employer list.

Victory is the publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.

“Penske proudly hires and employs veterans and active National Guard and Reserve members throughout our truck leasing and logistics businesses,” said Jennifer Sockel, Penske senior vice president of human resources.

“We sincerely appreciate their service and dedication to our country,” she added. “The values, work ethic and skills veterans and active military members bring to our workplace are truly valued within our organization.”

Companies received consideration for this list via a data-driven survey of thousands of companies with resulting survey data independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.

Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

“Companies that have earned the 2016 Military-Friendly Employer award have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful careers for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, chief product officer of Victory Media and Navy Reserve veteran.

Penske was No. 91 overall and achieved an industry rank of 13th.

Approximately 13 percent of Penske’s annual new hires are veterans. Visit for more information on career opportunities.
