News Release -- October 07, 2009
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 7 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has been recognized for the third consecutive year by Military Spouse magazine as one of America's "Top 10 Military Spouse Friendly Employers," according to the magazine's October 2009 issue.
The third annual list recognizes corporations based on their efforts to employ spouses of military troops. Top companies were selected from a pool of approximately 2,500 organizations that earn a minimum of $1 billion in annual revenues.
"We invest in this recruitment effort because military spouses represent a highly educated and talented labor pool," says Melinda Evans, chief global diversity officer. "Military spouses are not only capable, but match the business needs and the culture of our company."
"Military spouse hires bring a wealth of experience, education, and skills," says Andrea M. Hall, a military spouse herself at CSC who manages the company's Military Spouse Employment Program. "A spouse will likely bring to CSC the same level of dedication their service member spouse brings to the U.S. Armed Forces."
