The SBAC urges business members to support and recruit veterans by joining the Illinois Hires Heroes Consortium
Illinois Hires Heroes Consortium (IHHC) is a business alliance where owners agree to implement a series of Veteran recruitment, training and retention practices. Consortium members are then provided with the ability to recruit veterans at no cost and can exclusively display the IHHC logo, letting consumers know that the company meets specific goals to actively hire and support Veterans.
Employers who join the consortium are required to commit to at least three initiatives, including military veteran recruitment, training, and retention practices, and take a pledge to actively participate and promote hiring military veterans.
Governor Quinn will publicly recognize those employers that complete and satisfy these initiatives. Thus, they will be united as veteran-friendly companies and organizations.
