Virginia has a unique opportunity to help Veterans gain career employment. Our Commonwealth has one of the youngest Veterans population in the United States, and the fastest growing Veteran labor force in the United States. Thousands of new Veterans enter Virginia’s workforce each year, and that number is projected to rise in the coming years.
While many employers are unaware of the value Veterans can bring to their workforce, thousands more are seeking to hire Veterans as a part of their workforce but don’t know how.
Two of the most frequent questions pertaining to Veteran employment, from an employer’s perspective are, “Why should I hire a Veteran?” and “Where can I find Veterans to hire?”
The Virginia Values Veterans V3 Program helps employers develop and implement successful, long-term strategies to recruit, hire, and retain Virginia Veterans. Hiring Veterans is not only the right thing to do but also a smart business decision. The knowledge and abilities today’s service members and Veterans gain in our modern military make them an extremely valuable talent pool for companies that wish to grow and improve organizational performance.
