Hiring Vets Is Good Business
Irvine, Calif., May 25, 2011 - With the recent death of Osama bin Laden and the Memorial Day weekend approaching, many of us are reflecting on the courageous men and women who are serving or have served in the military.
As the economy continues to recover, Decision Toolbox , a nationwide provider of project based hiring and on-demand Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)/Recruitment Partner Insourcing (RPI) , hopes companies, large and small, will consider hiring a talented and qualified American veteran.
Late last year, the Society for Human Resource Management featured an article highlighting the key benefits for companies that hire disabled American veterans:
' They get a talented and dedicated worker. ' They receive up to a $4800 tax credit per veteran hired. ' They receive additional tax breaks if they are required to make workplace modifications to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
'Small, independently owned companies and large organizations alike can take advantage of these exciting work and tax relief programs, so it truly is a win-win scenario,' says Kim Shepherd, CEO of Decision Toolbox. 'Waste Management, one of our top clients, partners regularly with local military bases, the Veterans Administration, and many other organizations that specialize in helping veterans transition back into the traditional American workforce.'
'One in 12 of our employees are veterans,' explains Wes Reel, Disability & Military Recruiting/Outreach, Waste Management, Inc. 'We hire a veteran at our company almost 365 days a year. Because of these hiring practices, we have been recognized by GI Jobs as a top military-friendly employer and Military Times Magazine as a Top 50 Best for Vets Employer.'
