Reno, Nevada – July 14, 2018 – The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) has named JMA Solutions as the 2018 Small Employer of the Year. Each year, DAV recognizes employers across the United States whose efforts ensure veterans are properly supported and receive suitable employment opportunities. JMA was selected over more than a dozen of small businesses (249 or fewer employees) for its veteran recruiting efforts and outreach program. Over the last year, JMA’s veteran workforce has increased to 19% due to the company’s outreach with local veteran employment representatives and transition assistance programs.
“It is an honor to receive DAV’s Small Employer of the Year Award for our veteran recruiting efforts,” said JMA Solutions president and CEO Jan Adams, a DAV life member of Chapter 17, Washington, D.C. “As a part of the veteran community, I believe we should work together to ensure veterans and their families are supported for their selfless sacrifice in serving our nation.”
DAV empowers veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. It is dedicated to a single purpose: fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served. DAV does this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; providing employment resources to veterans and their spouses; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life. DAV, a nonprofit organization with more than 1 million members, was founded in 1920 and chartered by the U. S. Congress in 1932.
