More and more employers are stepping up to hire veterans with disabilities. The nearly 4 million veterans with a service-connected disability are among the most resilient members of society, having served in the military and overcome diversity.
DAV NATIONAL COMMANDER’S AWARDS FOR THE SMALL, MIDSIZE, AND LARGE EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR
The purpose of the DAV’s Employer Awards Program is to provide public recognition to those employers who demonstrate by their employment policies, hiring practices and community outreach that they have an unwavering commitment and passion to ensure all veterans obtain suitable employment to care for themselves and their families – and have the opportunity to live life with respect and dignity.
Evaluation criteria includes the strength of the company’s veteran recruiting/hiring efforts, retention and career-building efforts, company policies toward disabled veterans, active-duty, and veteran employees, and community outreach initiatives to support all veterans in communities where the business operates.
Three award winners will be selected from the nominations submitted: The DAV Small Employer of the Year Award will be given to an employer with 1 to 249 employees, the DAV Midsize Employer of the Year Award will be given to an employer with 250 to 999 employees, and the DAV Large Employer of the Year Award will be given to an employer with more than 1000 employees.
