Web-Based Toolkit Aims to Help Employers Hire Veterans
Web-Based Toolkit Aims to Help Employers Hire Veterans

A new web-based toolkit that helps guide employers through the process of hiring military veterans is now available. The free toolkit was created to assist and educate employers who are looking to include veterans and wounded soldiers in their recruitment and hiring initiatives.

Debuting at a time when the Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has vowed to increase its enforcement regarding veterans and disabled workers, the toolkit is part of DOL's "America's Heroes at Work" initiative and features a step-by-step process to help businesses design a veterans hiring initiative. The process includes:

  • Creating an educated and welcoming environment for veteran employees;
  • Recruiting veterans, wounded soldiers, and military spouses;
  • Learning how to accommodate qualified veterans and wounded soldiers in the workplace; and
  • Promoting an inclusive workplace to retain veteran employees.

The toolkit also includes a reference list of online resources to help organizations with hiring efforts including links to veterans' employment service organizations, places to receive consultations on workplace accommodations and answers to common employer questions about hiring veterans and wounded soldiers.
