Sanford Health has been recognized as a 2022 Military Friendly® Employer on the 19th annual list that was released Thursday, Nov. 11. This is the third year in a row that Sanford Health has been recognized as a Military Friendly® Employer.

“We value our nation’s heroes and are dedicated to providing them with not only exceptional care but with the employment opportunities they deserve to support their families,” said Captain Paul Weckman, head of military and veteran affairs at Sanford Health. “Sanford is proud to be recognized as an employer who cares about military service members and veterans.”

Military Friendly® evaluates companies using public data and responses from a survey, which more than 1,000 companies participated in. It looks at organizations that are committed to serving the military and veteran community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for applicants, new hire retention, employee turnover, and advancement of veterans and military employees. The institutions that are recognized, including Sanford Health, lead the way in things like hiring, career advancement, customer service and charitable investment.

“We have industry-leading programs at Sanford to support our heroes during and after their service,” said Captain Weckman. “We know military service members and veterans bring unique perspectives to their roles, so we’re proud to have them part of the Sanford family.”

Some of the unique benefits offered to our nation’s veterans at Sanford include a continuation of benefits during qualified military deployments, an automatic screening interview, and education scholarships.
