Did you know that thousands of veterans enter Virginia’s workforce each year – and that number is expected to grow? As veterans return to civilian life, they are seeking not just a job, but a meaningful career path. 

Simply put, veterans make incredible employees. Veterans are highly disciplined, mission-driven team players who bring a wealth of experience to your organization. As a result of their service, veterans have the proven ability to learn rapidly, lead well, work with all types of people, and perform with excellence, even when the pressure is high. Veterans are also incredibly loyal, resulting in a low rate of turnover.

AGCVA salutes our veterans, and we are honored to announce that we are now a Virginia Values Veterans (V3) certified organization. The Virginia Values Veterans Program is a free training and certification program for employers to help them implement nationally recognized best practices in recruiting, hiring, and retaining highly-skilled and dependable Veterans. 

Certification is easyWe encourage your organization to consider taking this step, which directly connects you with a highly-skilled, well-educated, and easily-trained talent pool. Virginia is uniquely positioned, as the commonwealth has one of the youngest veteran populations, as well as the fastest growing veteran labor force in the United States.

With a few simple steps, you can secure the future of your company, while also giving back to those who put everything on the line for our nation.

We’re honored that V3 will be joining us this week for the Construction Workforce Development Forum on Saturday, during AGCVA’s Summer Conference. Additionally, our team is happy to answer questions about the certification process or connect you with the V3 team. Contact Courtney Baker, AGCVA Director of Workforce & Training to learn more.
