May is National Military Appreciation Month and ASA wants to remind you that hiring veterans and transitioning military service members makes good business sense. Veterans often make outstanding candidates in all occupational areas thanks to their professional discipline and work ethic. Plus, employers are eligible for tax credits of $2,400 to $9,600 per employee thanks to the VOW to Hire Heroes Act.
The ASA committee on social responsibility has compiled resources that staffing companies can use to help educate clients about the importance and benefits of hiring veterans. Visit americanstaffing.net to access these resources. To learn more about National Military Appreciation Month and how your company can help celebrate, visit nmam.org.
