Paychex Honors Veterans Day with Paychex WORX Series to Help Businesses Hire Veteran Workers

November 11, 2016

In honor of Veterans Day, Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of integrated human capital management solutions for payroll, HR, retirement, and insurance services, today announced a series of Paychex WORX resources aimed at providing today’s business owners with best practices and actionable tips for taking on a veteran hiring strategy – no matter the organization size or budget.

Research indicates the number of small business loans to veterans is up, which means more veterans are pursuing entrepreneurial aspirations post-service. However, there is an entire group of business owners who are seeking to hire veterans to help fill their staff(s), but may not know where or how to find them – or what might make a veteran an ideal candidate for an open position.

“Paychex proudly recognizes the value and transferable skills veterans bring to the civilian workforce after their active service to our armed forces has ended,” said Paychex president and CEO Martin Mucci. “While Veterans Day provides a natural tie to spotlight the impact of veterans in the workplace, it’s important that the conversation around businesses developing a strategic plan to find, hire, and on-board veterans happens on a year-round basis.”

To help start that dialog, Paychex has partnered with veteran hiring expert Lida Citroen to author a series of Paychex WORX posts:

Paychex WORX is the company’s digital destination for insightful knowledge, tools, and resources for businesses at every stage, from entrepreneur to enterprise.
