Veteran support

ABM announced it has been named a 2024 VETS Indexes 3 Star Employer. The award recognizes the Company’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, retaining, developing, and supporting veterans and the military-connected community.

“We greatly value the contributions and unique experience of our nation’s active military personnel, reservists, and veterans, and are thrilled to receive the VETS Indexes 3 Star Employer Award. This honor recognizes ABM’s unwavering commitment to supporting and empowering our veterans and the military community,” said Scott Salmirs, president and chief executive officer of ABM.

In 2023, ABM launched Veterans at ABM, a team member-led impact group dedicated to growing ABM as a welcoming place to work, where veterans and their families feel they are supported and empowered to contribute, grow and succeed.

“As one of the largest facility solutions providers, we have a multitude of roles and opportunities for which the military community can draw on their past experience and apply their talents in new and exciting ways,” adds Salmirs. “From those who choose to join our team, to the veteran-owned suppliers and subcontractors we partner with, ABM is dedicated to providing opportunity and support for our active duty, military veterans and their families.”

This year, a record 344 organizations submitted completed surveys for the VETS Indexes Employer Awards, an increase of more than 100 from last year and nearly triple the number from two years ago. Responding organizations included companies large and small, government agencies and departments, nonprofit groups, colleges, and universities, and not every responding organization made the cut – only those that demonstrated a strong commitment to veterans, members of the National Guard and Reserves, and military spouses.

“Competition for the VETS Indexes Employer Awards was tougher than ever in 2024, as a record number of organizations participated. Even with hundreds of employers in the running, ABM demonstrated a strong dedication to veteran employment. Congratulations to ABM on this achievement!” says George Altman, president of VETS Indexes.
