The U.S. Veterans Magazine announced through their 2013 Best of the Best List that Hyundai is among the nation’s top veteran friendly companies. Veterans Magazine evaluates employment, business, and supplier opportunities for returning U.S. veterans.
Hyundai Motors, the only automotive manufacturer to make the list, paid more than $24 million in rebates to U.S. military and family members last year. This year, U.S. military personnel and veterans account for 1 in 10 Hyundai vehicle sales.
Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher, U.S. Veterans Magazine, said:
“Hyundai Motor America offers veterans the opportunity to quickly and easily transition into civilian life by providing engaging and valuable career opportunities.”
The 2013 Best of the Best Lists were compiled from a multitude of sources including market research, independent research, diversity conference participation and survey responses.
Erwin Raphael, director, Engineering & Quality, Hyundai Motor America, says:
“Providing valuable employment opportunities to returning veterans remains one of our most mutually-beneficial hiring strategies… Veterans possess the character, discipline and personal drive that we look for in our employees. Making it a priority to provide veterans with valuable careers and rebates on new vehicles is an opportunity for us to give back to those who have dedicated their lives to our country.”
Hyundai’s Military Rebate Program provides anyone who has served a single day in any branch of the U.S. Military, including Reserve and National Guard forces, with a $500 rebate towards the purchase or lease of a new Hyundai vehicle. The program similarly applies to spouses of military personnel.
