Hiring veterans: How your company can benefit
For example, a Colorado police department had one of its officers deploy four times! That certainly created a hardship for the department, but it didn’t stop them from showing support. The serviceperson’s wife was having trouble making the mortgage payments, so they took up a collection to fill the gap until he returned. They set up a schedule where a different employee would send a care package every two weeks. When he returned, he was welcomed back with a luncheon and was able to tell everyone how much that support meant to him and his family. This is an employer who has gone above and beyond.
These companies, and many others, are sharing the advantages of putting our military veterans back to work! Why not join them.
