Athene Holding Ltd., through its U.S. insurance subsidiary, Athene USA, has earned both the 2021 Military Friendly and Military Friendly Spouse Employer designations, representing the top tier of institutions that provide the best opportunities for military service members and spouses. Athene USA, based in West Des Moines, is a provider of retirement savings products. “Receiving the Military Friendly Employer and Military Friendly Spouse designations for a fifth consecutive year is truly an honor,” said Grant Kvalheim, CEO and president of Athene USA. “Our veterans and their families sacrifice so much for our country, and we remain committed to supporting them in the workplace and beyond. We deeply value the experience our service members bring to Athene and we continually work to design programs that focus on recruiting, hiring, advocating and honoring our service members.” 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 a proprietary survey from participating companies.
