Recognizing veteran employers

The purpose of the DAV Patriot Employer Program is to provide recognition to those employers who demonstrate by their employment policies, hiring practices and community outreach that they have an unwavering commitment and passion to ensure all veterans obtain suitable employment to care for themselves and their families – and have the opportunity to live life with respect and dignity. Evaluation criteria includes the strength of the company’s veteran recruiting/hiring efforts, retention and career-building efforts, company policies toward disabled veterans, active-duty and veteran employees and community outreach initiatives to support all veterans in communities where the business operates.

All employers who meet the eligibility requirements will be recognized as a DAV Patriot Employer and will receive a digital badge to display on their website.

Eligibility

  • Nominees may be a company, firm, association or organization
  • All nominations submitted for recognition as a DAV Patriot Employer will also be considered for the DAV Employer of the Year Awards
