VIRGINIA WORKFORCE CONFERENCE 2017
Visionary Consulting Partners was proud to attend the 5th Annual V3 (Virginia Values Veterans) Summit, in conjunction with the 2017 Virginia Workforce Conference in Richmond, Virginia. Virginia was the first state to create an official program dedicated to improving the employment of veterans by training employees on the best practices to recruit, hire, train, and retain veterans. In August 2014, Governor McAuliffe challenged the V3 Program to hire 10,000 veterans in four years. V3 reached this goal 900 days ahead of schedule. The Governor set a new goal of 20,000 hires by 2018, which was met 400 days ahead of schedule in November 2016. In February 2017, he set a new goal of 25,000 hires, which was once again reached ahead of schedule in July 2017. The current goal is set at 30,000 veteran hires by January 2018.
