YesVets Program

Purpose

YesVets is a Washington State campaign created to recognize businesses that show their commitment to veteran employment by hiring veterans into their workforce.  Statistically, veterans who gain rapid re-employment re-integrate into civilian life more quickly and have retention that is 2-3 times longer than non-veterans.
 

Benefits

List your business in a statewide database as a veteran-friendly employer

Become eligible for the Hire-a-Veteran award and receive a decal to display at your business

Veteran's come with accelerated learning curve, leadership, teamwork, diversity, and inclusion-in-action, efficient performance under pressure, respect for procedures, technology, and globalization

 

YesVets Decal

  • Businesses receive a YesVets window decal and a Year decal from a WorkSource Veterans Representative at an appropriate venue such as a Chamber event or company gathering of employees.
  • YesVets decals and a decal indicating the year of participation are to be prominently displayed at the employer's business location.
  • Subsequent year decals are awarded if businesses continue to hire or employ veterans.  These year decals are displayed chronologically in rows to the right of the basic decal.
