V3 Program Joins WRIC to Discuss Benefits of Hiring Veterans

V3 Program Manager, Andrew Schwartz, joined Kerri O’Brien on Thursday for the 12:00 news to discuss the benefits of hiring Veterans.

“The V3 Program is a free employer training and certification program … We train and education companies how to implement nationally recognized best practices in recruiting, hiring, and retaining Veterans,” Schwartz said.

Besides the intangible benefits of hiring great leaders with a dedicated work ethic, Schwartz also emphasized the new V3 Employment Grant Fund, under which V3 companies could be eligible to receive as much as $10,000 for hiring and retaining Veterans.
