Minneapolis – (September 5, 2018) Ameriprise Financial (NYSE: AMP) announced today it has been named a 2019 Military Friendly® Employer for the fifth year in a row. The annual Military Friendly® Employer List provides a comprehensive guide to help veterans and their spouses connect with companies offering support and employment opportunities.
 
“We are committed to supporting veterans and active military members with the tools and resources needed to thrive in their roles at Ameriprise. We respect and thank them for their service to our country, and we value the many contributions they make to our workplace and to serving our clients,” said Kelli Hunter Petruzillo, executive vice president of human resources at Ameriprise.
 
To receive the designation, the firm was evaluated using public information in conjunction with results from a proprietary survey. Final ratings were determined by combining the survey score with an assessment of the company’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
 
Ameriprise will be showcased along with other 2019 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2019 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
 
More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2019 Military Friendly® Companies survey. Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community.
