Stafford, VA | Nov 10, 2021 – Military Times recently announced its 2021 Best for Vets: Employers rankings. KSA Integration made the list for the second year in a row.
This year, almost 200 organizations submitted responses to the Best for Vets: Employers survey that fielded from July to September, and 161 employers made the list. This editorially independent program produces a highly respected analysis of a company’s efforts to recruit, retain, and support current and former service members, military spouses, and military caregivers.

Over 70% of KSA’s work force are veterans who retired from military service or serve among the active ranks. KSA prides itself on the company’s commitment to serving those who served. We apply that same level of care to our company’s culture, competitive benefits, and work-life balance. “I am honored KSA received this prestigious award and privileged to be working with a team so dedicated to veterans support and issues. KSA is devoted to maintaining programs and policies that support veterans’ post-military careers,” says KSA Founder and CEO LtGen Keith Stalder (USMC, ret.).
This year, KSA’s Best for Vets survey received the following commendations:
- 4th in Small or Medium-Sized Businesses category
- 7th in Consulting
- 26th in the state of Virginia
“Military Times continues to set the standard for employer rankings for transitioning service members and veterans. Although often imitated, there is no other list that comes close to Best for Vets: Employers,” says Mort Greenberg, SVP of media solutions at Military Times. “We stand by the rigor and soundness of this survey, which spotlights companies’ employment programs that help transitioning service members excel in their post-military careers.”
This year, Military Times collaborated with Fors Marsh Group (FMG) to update the research methodology and analysis from previous years to provide a streamlined, user-friendly survey experience for participants. The survey captured the areas of greatest importance to transitioning service members, veterans, and their families when looking for an employer. Recruitment and employment practices, as well as retention and support programs, were given the most weight and importance in scoring and final rankings.
“As a company that’s proud to hire military veterans and their family members, we see this survey and our partnership with Military Times as an opportunity to further the credibility and recognition of the companies committed to being Best for Vets Employers, as well as a resource for companies seeking to improve or extend their current veteran hiring practices,” said Andy Blenkle, FMG’s vice president of marketing and public service recruitment.
In its 12th year, Military Times Best for Vets: Employers rankings are based on the results of a voluntary survey that covered the policies and practices that make companies an attractive place to work for current employees and future job seekers within the military community.
