Disabled Veterans Recruitment – Dog Handler leads the way
We were contacted this week by a small business that really wants to help our armed forces personnel by hiring disabled veterans. Happy Dog Scent Detection Services is owned and managed by Veterans and services clients in the Greater Toronto Area by detecting bed bug infestations. http://www.hdsd.ca/ Happy Dog Scent Detection Services is looking to train Veterans in Dog handling and detection skills so if working with mans best friend appeals to you go to the job advertisement below:
There are tens of thousands of disabled veterans in Canada and at least a Million in the United States. As the unemployment rate has declined to 4.9% in the US employers, who should always be targeting veterans, should make sure they are also targeting disabled veterans as it is the right thing to do. Disabled employees also have higher retention rates which results in lower hiring and training costs. Finally there are great incentives with both Cash and tax credits for hiring US Veterans. http://www.benefits.va.gov/VOW/for-employers.asp
