The Commitment provides businesses with the opportunity to make a public commitment to support greater employment opportunities for veterans. You will commit to veteran employment by recognising the skills, values and experience that veterans can bring to your business. You will seek to provide opportunities and support veteran employees in your business.
The Commitment is all about demonstrating your support for veterans employment. Check out the Employer section for resources and guidance on how you can hire and support veterans in your business.
Your business will benefit from making a public commitment to veterans employment, including:
When you sign the Commitment, we’ll ask for some basic demographic information about your business such as type of industry, size and location. We’ll also ask for your business’ logo to display on the Supporter page. If you don’t have a logo we’ll list your business name instead. We’ll link your logo back to the website you provide when signing the Commitment – this could be your homepage or recruitment page, for example.
We’ll supply you with an official Supporter logo that can be used on your website, recruitment and marketing material. The Commitment doesn’t involve any financial incentives for hiring veterans – but you’ll gain much more from having a highly-skilled and hard-working veteran employee join your team.
You’ll also be sent a short survey on an annual basis to help us collect information about businesses employing veterans. This survey will be voluntary and isn’t a condition of signing the Commitment, but it does give your business a good opportunity to share any positive experiences you’ve had employing veterans. The survey will also give you an opportunity to share any thoughts you have on the Commitment and the Veterans Employment Program, and may help us to develop any new initiatives to support veterans employment.
