Treasury Earns Recognition as Silver-Level Veteran-Friendly Employer

State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks today announced that the Michigan Department of Treasury has achieved Silver-Level Veteran-Friendly Employer Certification from the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA).

“I am excited that Treasury has been designated as a Silver-Level Veteran-Friendly Employer,” State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks said. “This has been a priority for several years and having this designation shows our commitment to veterans, who bring unique skills and talents to the organizations they serve. We will continue to recruit and retain high-quality veteran candidates to help Treasury be successful serving Michigan’s taxpayers.”

Since being created in 2013, the Veteran-Friendly Employer Program has recognized 532 Michigan employers with either Bronze-, Silver- or Gold-level status for their efforts in supporting the recruitment, training and retention of veteran workforce talent. As part of the program, MVAA aids employers as they develop and improve their efforts to recruit and retain high-quality veteran candidates.

“The MVAA applauds the Department of Treasury for its commitment to hiring and retaining veterans,” said Zaneta Adams, director of the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA). “More and more Michigan employers – both public and private – are recognizing the value that our former service members bring to the table, and the MVAA is dedicated to actively helping these businesses and organizations grow their veteran workforces.”

To be selected as a Silver-Level Veteran-Friendly Employer, the state Treasury Department is required to follow guidelines outlined by the MVAA, which include committing to hiring veterans, signing a statement of support and continuing to learn best practices for hiring veterans throughout the year.
