Sonoco Named a "Best for Vets" Company


May 23, 2017 - Sonoco has been named one of 82 "Best for Vets" companies by Military Times. Sonoco joins other well-known brands, including Kellogg, AT&T, Hilton, Macy's Inc. and The Boeing Company on the distinguished list.

Sonoco, a certified Palmetto Military Employer, recognizes the valuable skills U.S. military veterans bring to its team, including a strong work ethic, loyalty and unwavering determination to be the best.

"Over the decades, Sonoco associates have answered the call to serve. We couldn't be more proud of the fact that we have so many associates who have served (or are serving) this country," said Jack Sanders, president and CEO.

In its eighth year, Best for Vets rankings evaluate companies' cultures, veteran recruiting, veteran policies and accommodations for members of the National Guard and reserves.

"The companies on the Military Times Best for Vets list earned their rankings through determined efforts to recruit and support service members, veterans and military families. These efforts deserve recognition from the country and should get the attention of veterans looking for a new career," said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings.
