The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program and Spike TV’s Hire A Vet campaign today named VRHabilis LLC one of eight finalists in the Small Business Tournament of Veteran Champions.
“We had extraordinary entries from coast-to-coast, but VRHabilis’ commitment to our nation’s veterans set itself apart,” said Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Schmiegel (ret.), executive director of Hiring Our Heroes. “These eight finalists have established themselves as national leaders for other small businesses to follow. VRHabilis deserves to be recognized for its innovative strategies to recruit and support the men and women who have served our country.”
A combination of public voting and a panel of judges will narrow the field to four semifinalists and the same format will be used to select a winner. Voting for the Final Four continues through May 16, 2013, and for the champion through May 30, 2013. Judging for the tournament is based on criteria such as innovative recruiting and retention strategies for veterans, veteran community engagement and leadership as well as an ongoing commitment to hire veterans.
