On August 9, Governor Terry McAuliffe announced that over 26,000 Veterans have been hired through the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program since its inception in 2014.
The NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI) is proud to announce that NVTC member companies are responsible for over 6,000 of these Veteran hires!
The Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program is a Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Veterans Services Program. V3 helps employers understand, design and implement nationally recognized best practices in recruiting, hiring and retaining Veterans. Nearly early 600 companies and state and local governments are V3-certified promising to prioritize bringing Veteran talent into their organizations.
The VEI is a strategic partner with V3. V3 Northern Virginia Program Manager Rick Ferry sits on the VEI Task Force and VEI Executive Director Steve Jordon sits on the V3 Veterans Workforce Steering Committee.
Currently 35 NVTC member companies are V3-certified and that number continues to grow. Micron is the latest NVTC member to be certified just last week (photo, left).
In 2015 and 2016, NVTC was honored by the Virginia Department of Veterans Services with the V3 Commonwealth Award. The Commonwealth Awards are presented to strategic partners and supporters of the Virginia Values Veterans V3 Program who have made significant contributions to the operation, strategy, and mission of the V3 Program and who have used their expertise to help make Virginia the most Veteran-friendly state in nation to work.
