How do organizations perceive on-the-job performance of veterans with disabilities? Nearly three-quarters of organizations agreed (responded “strongly agree” or “agree”) that, in general, veterans with disabilities perform on the job as well as any other employee.

Employers who want to include Veterans and wounded warriors in their recruitment and hiring initiatives should check out the Veterans Hiring Toolkit on the America's Heroes at Work website. The National Resource Directory is a good resource for Veterans looking jobs, job training and career counseling.
