JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – November 10, 2023 – CSX has been named a 2024 Military Friendly employer by one of the nation’s leading organizations that evaluate companies’ “commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the military community.”
CSX received the honor for its success in recruiting, hiring and providing a positive work environment for military veterans.
“Organizations earning the Military Friendly Employers designation have wholeheartedly invested in comprehensive and impactful initiatives that bring about positive, life-changing results,” said Kayla Lopez, senior director of military partnerships at Military Friendly. “We salute these exemplary employers who raise the bar and understand that hiring military personnel is not merely an act of goodwill but a testament to a standard that truly embodies sound business wisdom.”
The Military Friendly designation, based on survey responses and publicly available data, is one of several recognitions CSX has received in 2023 for its efforts to hire veterans and support the nation’s military community.
“Being recognized for hiring veterans is a welcome validation of our efforts, but the real reward is seeing the positive impact veterans have on our ONE CSX culture of teamwork and service,” said Diana Sorfleet, executive vice president and chief administrative officer. “All across our network, CSX veterans exemplify the ONE CSX principles of collaboration and inclusion, both in our workforce and in the communities we serve.”
CSX creates a veteran-friendly environment through its career-development programs; through its Pride in Service community investment initiative, which supports the military community and first responders; and through its Military Business Resource Group, which enables veterans to connect and share their insights, challenges and successes.
The company also supports employees who continue to serve in the National Guard and Reserves by ensuring they are able to perform their service without impacting their compensation, and it participates in programs that help veterans successfully transition to private industry.
