DirectEmployers Recognized at 2017 NASWA Veterans Conference for Supporting Veterans Employment Programs

Indianapolis, IN, Aug. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In an effort to highlight the Association’s service to veterans, the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) recognized DirectEmployers Association with an award at its 2017 Veterans Conference in Washington, D.C. for its exemplary commitment to supporting veteran employment programs through the National Labor Exchange (NLx).

“For the past 10 years, DirectEmployers has had the pleasure of watching our partnership with NASWA grow, and in that growth we’ve seen the NLx transform into the truly unique collaboration it is today,” commented Candee Chambers. “We were honored to accept this award and are humbled knowing that our continued efforts have made an impact in the veteran community, and helped our nation’s heroes find meaningful employment.”

Since partnering with NASWA in 2007, DirectEmployers Association and NASWA have worked to create a truly collaborative partnership that brings state workforce agencies and employers closer together, and ultimately results in stronger connectivity between job seekers and nationwide employment opportunities. Through this joint effort, DirectEmployers and its members have gone to great lengths to support veteran employment programs and recognize employers who support the hiring of transitioning servicemembers and veterans. 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the NLx partnership which makes over 2.3 million jobs available daily from 300,000 employers nationwide–all playing a key role in rebuilding America’s workforce.

In addition to being recognized for supporting veteran employment programs, DirectEmployers was a diamond sponsor of the event, while also sponsoring keynote presenter Brad Snyder, former Navy Lieutenant who lost his eyesight to an improvised explosive device, and now a Paralympic gold-medalist in swimming.

About the National Labor Exchange (NLx)

The NLx is a collaboration between employers and state workforce agencies to better assist one another, provide the transmittal of quality job content, and reduce the inefficiencies seen by both parties. This technology helps federal contractors fulfill the OFCCP’s Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (4212/VEVRAA) job listing requirements, while assisting state workforce agencies to meet hiring objectives, maximize budgetary funding and provide more job content without using additional time and resources dedicated to employer outreach efforts.
