DES MOINES, Iowa – December 06, 2017 – For the ninth consecutive year, Berkshire Hathaway Energy has been named a Military Friendly® Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM and Military Spouse.

Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies, personal opinion data from veteran employees and proprietary Military Friendly® survey data from participating organizations. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2018 Military Friendly® Companies survey.

“We are proud of our employees who are veterans and active members of the military. Their talents, leadership and dedication are an integral part of our businesses, and they play a key role in our ability to deliver safe, reliable energy to our customers,” said Greg Abel, Berkshire Hathaway Energy chairman, president and CEO.

Military experience transfers well into a variety of technical and leadership positions. The personal attributes that many military veterans exemplify, such as passion and self-motivation, provide significant value to organizations, especially within the energy industry. Veterans and military members are encouraged to visit Berkshire Hathaway Energy’s Opportunities for Veterans career page to learn more and look for civilian positions related to their military experience.
