November 11, 2022

West Des Moines, Iowa — November 11, 2022 — Athene Holding Ltd. through its U.S. insurance subsidiary, Athene USA, has earned the silver award as a 2023 Military Friendly Employer® and was designated as a Military Spouse Friendly® Employer, from VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business, and publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine.
 

“At Athene, we believe that our service members have the leadership skills and values that are transferable to our business and helps drive our success. That’s why we are committed to recruiting and hiring veterans,” said Grant Kvalheim, CEO and President, Athene USA. “We are honored to be recognized as a Military Friendly® Employer and Military Friendly® Spouse Employer. Athene is also a signatory to the Department of Defense Employer Statement on the Guard and Reserve. We feel it is our duty to honor and advocate for our service members and their families as a way to thank them for their contributions.”
 

In addition to its efforts around hiring veterans, Athene encourages its employees to actively engage with the veteran community in several ways. Athene’s employee resource group (ERG), the Athene Military Veterans Organization (AMVO), coordinates volunteer events, donation drives and speakers to build awareness and engagement for veterans’ affairs.
 

The Military Friendly®  Employers list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal contractors nationwide, the input of military employees, and responses to the proprietary, data driven Military Friendly® Employers survey from participating companies. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weightings were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by Ernst & Young.


Athene will be showcased along with other 2023 Military Friendly® Employers on MilitaryFriendly.com.
