More Than 250 Veteran-Friendly Employers Recognized at Award Ceremony
More Michigan employers are focusing on recruiting, training and retaining military veterans under a public-private partnership led by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA).
Former Lt. Gov. Brian Calley joined MVAA Director James Redford to recognize more than 250 employers during the fourth annual Michigan Veteran-Friendly Employer Awards and Recognition Breakfast.
This year’s Rising Star Award winner was Consumers Energy, which was recognized for its novel approaches to veteran recruiting and hiring, including implementing senior leader training for veteran mental health issues and awareness; making Veterans Day a paid holiday; and dedicating a Talent Acquisition Team to translate military experiences to company roles.
