PenFed Credit Union Named “Best Veteran Friendly Business” by US Veterans Magazine for Third Year in a Row
“PenFed is honored to be recognized by US Veterans Magazine for the third consecutive year for its commitment to the military community,” said James Schenck, President and CEO of PenFed Credit Union and CEO of the PenFed Foundation. “We are proud to celebrate the resilience of veterans and military spouses here at PenFed. Veterans bring an invaluable wealth of skills and knowledge to our team, and as we grow we will continue our robust recruiting efforts within the military community. “
The annual review is an assessment of the military employment efforts of employers, initiatives, government agencies, and educational institutions nationwide. This unbiased study is a valuable resource for job seekers, business owners, students, consumers, senior executives, trade associations, employment agencies and consumer groups. PenFed’s accomplishments will be featured in the August / Fall 2021 print and online issue of US Veterans Magazine.

In addition to devoting 10% of its recruiting budget to hiring and retaining veterans and military spouses, PenFed works with dozens of military employment organizations, as well as dozens of Settlement Transition Assistance Program offices to enhance our military employment efforts.
