Chamber members are welcome to utilize a new free Veteran Hiring Resources Toolkit to help find and hire veterans, National Guard members and Reservists. The free Toolkit helps employers in four ways:
- 3-minute video briefing on the latest Federal Tax Credits for hiring veterans;
- Recorded webinar providing many helpful recruiting insights that can be used immediately;
- Guide to Organizations Helping Pennsylvania Employers Hire Veterans, Reservists and National Guard Members; and,
- Submission of your job postings directly to employment transition counselors in all branches of the military.
The free Toolkit is published by Center for America, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is in a pro bono alliance with the National Guard Bureau in Washington, D.C., and many trade associations across the U.S. It encourages all employers to take advantage of this free Toolkit to get help hiring veterans, Guard members and Reservists. More than 200,000 active duty military service members leave the military every year and National Guard and Reserve Members are all expected to have full-time civilian employment. These veterans and service members will bring discipline, leadership and advanced skills to help build organizations.
