For the fifth consecutive year, RE/MAX has been named a Top Military Spouse Friendly Employer by Military Spouse magazine in recognition of the real estate franchise company’s commitment to military families.
This year’s Top Twenty was selected from a pool of more than 5,000 large companies and RE/MAX was the highest ranking real estate company in the survey.
“We’ve always supported members of the military and their families,” said Gail Liniger, RE/MAX co-founder and its vice-chairman. “It’s part of our effort to give back to the communities where we do business. Our offices hire military spouses because they make dedicated, organized employees who work hard to get the job done right.”
Each of the companies were assessed on a variety of factors, including:
- The number of military spouse employees.
- Efforts and results to recruit military spouses
- A firm’s willingness to find new jobs for military spouses that are relocating on orders from the military.
Operation RE/MAX has been helping military spouses and former military personnel find jobs in real estate for the past five years. Created in cooperation with the Department of Defense, the program matches members of the military community with volunteer RE/MAX brokers, who have made a commitment to coach, train and mentor military personnel.
RE/MAX is joined on the Top Twenty list by other high-profile organizations such as USAA, T-Mobile, Kelly Services and Sears Roebuck & Co.
As a result of the success of Operation RE/MAX, the company was honored with the Office of the Secretary of Defense Exceptional Public Service Award in 2007. Operation RE/MAX has enlisted the support of more than 700 individual RE/MAX offices. The Top Twenty list is featured in Military Spouse magazine’s October 2011 issue.
