Hiring in 2011…Three Good Reasons to Bring on a Disabled Veteran

By Jennifer Roberts, Recruiter, Decision Toolbox

At this time of year, many of us are reflecting back on the economic climate of 2010 and looking forward to a new and improving 2011. Many of Decision Toolbox’s clients are considering hiring additional new talent to prepare for 2011 and the continuing economic recovery. If your company is planning to hire new staff in 2011, please consider hiring a talented and qualified disabled American veteran.

In the November edition of HR Magazine, The Society for Human Resource Management (www.SHRM.org) wrote a terrific article highlighting the benefits for companies that hire disabled American veterans:
1. They get a talented and dedicated worker,
2. They receive up to a $4800 tax credit per veteran hired, and
3. They receive additional tax breaks if they are required to make workplace modifications to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Waste Management, a top client of Decision Toolbox, partners regularly with local military bases, the Veterans Administration, and the many other organizations that specialize in helping veterans transition back into the traditional American workforce.

Small, independently owned companies and large organizations alike can take advantage of these exciting work and tax relief programs. To learn more about how your company can honor a veteran, help him/her transition back into the civilian workforce, and positively impact your company’s bottom line please visit the following sites:

  • " (DT Recruiter) is fantastic! She is responsive and upbeat. She keeps her commitments. She is an attentive listener. I enjoy working with her. "
  • " Referral is the best compliment I can give which I have done for multiple colleagues and it is my understanding DT is working on additional reqs for us so that is good to hear. "
  • " As a rule, I will never fill out a survey and give the highest rating. No matter how good the service might be there is always room for improvement. However, in working with DT (especially my Recruitment Partner) a rating of 11 or higher would be needed. You all took the hideously dreadful process of finding and qualifying good candidates for our open position and made the process a breeze for me. "
