CWTSatoTravel honored as a 2024 VETS Indexes 5 Star Employer

CWTSatoTravel is proud to announce that we have earned the designation of VETS Indexes 5 Star Employer in the 2024 VETS Indexes Employer Awards. The award recognizes our company’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, retaining, developing, and supporting veterans and the military-connected community.

“The extraordinary efforts of CWTSatoTravel to hire, retain and support veterans and the military-connected community have earned the organization one of our highest awards,” said George Altman, president of VETS Indexes. 

“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, the veterans program at CWTSatoTravel stood out from the rest. Congratulations to CWTSatoTravel on this outstanding achievement!” Altman said.

This in-depth survey and recognition program analyzes employers’ policies, practices, and outcomes in detail, across the following 5 categories: 

  • Veteran job candidate recruiting and hiring

  • Veteran employee development and retention

  • Veteran-inclusive policies and culture

  • Support for members of the National Guard and Reserves

  • Military spouse/family support

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. Of those, VETS Indexes recognized 285 organizations across the following award levels: 5 Star Employer, 4 Star Employer, 3 Star Employer, and Recognized Employer. 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. Participating organizations included companies large and small, government agencies and departments, nonprofit groups, colleges, and universities.

This marks the fourth award of its kind that has been awarded to CWTSatoTravel over the past several months. We have also been recognized as part of the 2023 Military Times Best for Vets Employee Rankings, the 2024 Military Friendly Awards Silver designation, and a 2024 Military Friendly Spouse Employer. CWTSatoTravel is also a proud member of the SkillBridge program to help veterans transition into the workforce after service as well as being part of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) to help in hiring military spouses.
