Atlanta, GA – February 16, 2021 — NSC, a staffing agency dedicated to connecting companies and government agencies with skilled workers in the marine, construction, and manufacturing industries, today announced it has been recognized by the Virginia Department of Veterans Services as a certified employer within the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program.
This accreditation is the latest milestone in NSC’s enduring effort to build a better America by helping Americans become gainfully employed. Since it began placing Veterans in shipyards 20 years ago, NSC has continued to connect its clients with Veterans to increase workforce productivity and efficiency. In addition to helping Veterans support their families after they complete their military service, NSC also provides employment opportunities for active-duty personnel transitioning out of the military—through local VA Transition Assistance Programs—and active duty reservists. Through the V3 Program, NSC affirms its commitment to hire even more Veterans, military spouses, and Veteran family members in the future.
“Our enthusiasm for participating in the V3 program is twofold,” said Joe Myers, chief operating officer at NSC. “Part of our civic responsibility is to support the men and women who have served this country—and Veterans are an exceptional talent pool of highly skilled workers and experienced leaders.”
The V3 Program educates and trains employers on the value of Virginia military Veterans, helping employers develop and implement nationally recognized best practices in recruiting, hiring, and retaining Veterans. Over 67,000 Virginia Veterans have been hired through the program since its inception in 2012.
NSC was founded in 2000 by Paul Rodriguez, with an idea and determination to build a stronger America by connecting businesses with highly skilled workers. Today, the staffing company occupies more than 30 offices nationwide and places talent in 48 states. Government agencies and marine, energy, and manufacturing companies all trust NSC to provide the creative workforce solutions they need to operate at peak performance.
Dedicated to improving communities and creating opportunities for individuals, NSC also delivers hands-on training in Salinas, Puerto Rico. Local workers are equipped with valuable trade skills and deployed to work at locations where specialized skill sets are in high demand. For more information, visit www.nsc-tech.com.
