ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) announced today that it has received two awards highlighting its commitment to maintaining a people-first focus and an outstanding work environment in the communities where its employees work and live. The CARE award is given by Northern Virginia Family Service to companies that are leaders in providing family-friendly benefits and policies that help their employees meet the challenges of balancing work and life. The G.I. Jobs magazine 2010 Top 100 Military Friendly employer ranking recognizes companies that are the most military-friendly and have the top recruiting programs for veterans in the nation. ManTech was rated the fifth most military-friendly employer, listed in the top ten for the fourth year, and ranked ahead of other government/defense contractors.

“We are honored to receive both awards which attest to our recognition that employees are critical to our success and our desire to be an employer of choice in our marketplace,” said Lawrence B. Prior, III, President and Chief Operating Officer, ManTech International Corporation.”Since our founding 41 years ago by our Chairman and CEO George J. Pedersen, we have maintained a family-friendly atmosphere that provides assistance to employees in times of severe hardship, offers competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits, and encourages professional development through our award-winning ManTech University. Additionally, we actively recruit veterans because they share our dedication to the mission and they have the technical skills and leadership qualities that we need to support our customers. Being ranked in the top five in our market segment is an honor and we are very proud of this recognition.”

Companies are selected for the G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military ranking based on the assets they dedicate to military hiring, their Reserve/Guard policies, their percentage of new hires who are veterans and their veteran training programs. This is the seventh year that G.I. Jobs has published the Military Friendly Employers lists, which serves as a benchmark of corporate recruiting programs aimed at veterans.
