Concord Recognized as Bronze NH Veteran-Friendly Business
Concord is proud to announce that the City has been recognized as a Bronze NH Veteran-Friendly Business and is the first municipality in the state to receive this designation.
The NH Veteran-Friendly Business Recognition Program serves to recognize businesses that value contributions of service members, veterans and their families; support military and veteran families by identifying veteran‐friendly businesses; and contribute to a broader effort to match talented and skilled veterans with positions in New Hampshire businesses. The Department of Military Affairs & Veterans Services and NH Employment Security celebrates and partners with businesses and organizations in New Hampshire that strive to “Honor, Fortify, Empower and positively Impact the lives of NH Services Members, Veterans and their Families.”
“We are very pleased, as a city and an employer, to receive this designation as a NH Veteran-Friendly Business,” said Jennifer Johnston, Director of Human Resources and Labor Relations. “We strive to welcome and recruit service members, while also providing support to our veteran employees and their families. One of our supervisors was awarded the Patriotic Employer Award a couple of years ago for his support of employees who serve in the NH Army National Guard, and this is just one example of how we are committed to representing this program.”
The Bronze level designation recognizes employers that highlight and promote strategies, policies and practices that recognize and honor the service and sacrifice of military-connected employees through approved criteria.
