Avis Budget Group Recognized as a 'Best for Vets' Employer

Avis Budget Group Inc. has earned a place in the 2013 edition of Military Times' “Best for Vets: Employers” survey. Avis was recognized for its achievements in recruiting and employing veterans, for its policies related to veterans, reservists and their families, and for the organization's culture, among other factors.

"America's servicemen and servicewomen represent the best our country has to offer," said Ronald L. Nelson, Avis Budget Group chairman and chief executive officer. "Recruiting and employing these military heroes enables us to provide our customers with superior service and thereby accelerate growth. We are honored to be included in such a prestigious ranking."

Avis Budget Group's commitment to assisting current and former military personnel includes the following initiatives:

  • Avis Budget Group's chairman and CEO signed a "Statement of Support" for the country's military veterans, reservists and national guardsmen. A cornerstone effort of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense agency, the Statement of Support formalizes Avis Budget Group's practice of providing military personnel with employment opportunities and the training and tools needed to succeed.
  • Avis Budget Group is enrolled in the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition comprised of major corporations that have jointly committed to hiring 100,000 transitioning service members and military veterans by 2020. As part of its promise, Avis Budget Group recruits veterans via job fairs, military bases and online initiatives.
  • Avis Budget Group has a recruitment website for veterans and transitioning service members: www.avisbudgetgroup-veterans.jobs.
  • As the official rental car company of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), an organization that provides services to severely injured servicemen and servicewomen, Budget Car Rental provides transportation assistance as well as support for fundraising to further WWP's mission.
