Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program was created by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Department of Veteran Services to help employers understand, design, and implement nationally recognized best practices in recruiting, hiring, and retaining Veterans. There are currently 659 companies throughout the Commonwealth participating in the V3 program. These organizations understand the value of the Veteran in the workplace and have taken the steps to recruit, hire, train, and retain Veterans to meet their hiring goals.
The V3 Program helps employers develop and implement long-term strategies and nationally recognized best practices in recruiting, hiring, and retaining Veterans.
Through the V3 training and certification program, companies will gain a better understanding of what a Veteran is and how they can contribute to the workforce. They will also learn what leading companies are doing nationwide to attract and keep Veteran talent within their workforce, and will learn how to incorporate these strategies in their own organizations. Finally, they will receive access to resources that will help them connect more directly and proactively with the Veteran and military populations
To learn more about the enrollment and certification process, and to join the V3 Program (It’s Free!), go to www.dvsV3.com/join.
The V3 Team puts on regular V3 employer training seminars throughout the state, as well as conducts online training seminars (webinars) to help enrolled V3 companies complete all training requirements for state certfication. Again, all application, training, and certification are free.
