Department of Labor Announces Toolkit Aimed at Helping Businesses Hire Vets

The Department of Labor recently announced the introduction of a new online toolkit that guides employers through the process of hiring veterans. "Many employers have told us that they are interested in developing or enhancing a veterans hiring initiative for their company, but that they don't know where to begin," said Ray Jefferson, assistant secretary for the department's Veterans' Employment and Training Service. "This toolkit was created with these employers in mind. It's designed to simplify the process and put valuable, vetted resources at the employer's fingertips."

The toolkit is free and was developed as part of the DOL’s “America’s Heroes at Work” initiative. The toolkit provides six steps for the successful hiring of veterans, including designing a hiring strategy, creating a welcoming environment, active recruiting, hiring qualified veterans, promoting inclusiveness, and other tools. There is also helpful information on hiring injured and disabled veterans.

  1. Let us face it. Sometimes, we are too busy that we can not find time anymore for some important things to do. We must not be too proud to ask help from anybody especially when our job and future is on the line. We can hire labourers from a prestigious agency and they will pick the right people for the job.
