United Rentals named a “Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer”
United Rentals Inc. announced that the company has been selected by GI Jobs magazine as one of the nation's Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers for 2010. More than 5,000 U.S. companies with revenues of at least $500 million were considered for the honor, which was awarded based on the strength of a company's military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service and workforce policies regarding National Guard/Reserve service.

Michael Kneeland, chief executive officer of United Rentals, said, "In recent years, our company has made a concerted effort to recruit veterans of military service, as they exemplify many of the qualities we value as an employer: personal leadership, teamwork, discipline, diversity and a strong work ethic. This designation reflects the importance we place on maintaining our leadership position by hiring employees of the highest caliber."

GI Jobs magazine is a publication for military personnel transitioning to civilian employment, providing education, assistance and connections to job opportunities.
