Finalists Announced for Northern Virginia Technology Council Veterans Employment Initiative Inaugural Veteran Service Award
On Oct. 18, NVTC announced the finalists for the first-ever NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI) Veteran Service Award
sponsored by Monster and Military.com. The VEI supports NVTC member companies in their efforts to recruit, hire, train and retain qualified Veteran employees and helps match Veterans and military spouses with jobs, internships and mentorships.
The new VEI Veteran Service Award honors an NVTC member company that has demonstrated a superlative level of engagement with the VEI and support for the Veteran and military community. The winner will be announced at NVTC’s TechCelebration Banquet
on October 24, 2016 at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner.
“The Veteran Service Award finalist companies have not only hired Veterans, but also actively participated in the programs and services of VEI and other Veteran-focused philanthropic volunteer programs,” stated VEI Director Steve Jordon. “These companies are creating scalable Veteran hiring programs and have engaged their employees in supporting transitioning Veterans as well.”
“Monster and Military.com are proud to help recognize these employers who are committed to Veteran recruitment, hiring and retention. Working with NVTC to showcase the best practices in this area will help inform other employers in their efforts to hire Veteran talent,” said Greg Smith, president of Military.com and retired Navy Admiral.
Congratulations to the following Veteran Service Award finalists:
