DAYTON, OH – Integrity Applications Incorporated (IAI) hosted a Veteran Employment Workshop for Employers at its Beavercreek, Ohio office on May 6. The workshop was held in partnership with the Miami Valley Veterans & Employers Connection, a community partnership with Goodwill Easter Seals of Miami Valley. IAI is a charter member of this organization. Program Manager Dan Semsel, and workshop leaders Dan Knowles of the Cincinnati Chapter of the West Point Society and Jeanette Richardson of Time Warner Cable led a discussion about how companies can help veterans successfully transition from military to corporate culture and how veteran hires can positively impact business bottom lines. IAI Chairman and CEO Joseph L. Brickey and Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer William S. Jugus represented IAI the workshop as did Dayton Director of Advanced Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Programs Paul H. Issler and Director Dayton Operations Michael P. Ronayne.
“IAI seeks out military-experienced candidates because they are the best of the best talent out there,” said Mr. Brickey. “I believe wholeheartedly that the skills veterans and reservists learn in the armed forces are readily transferrable to the civilian workplace and that all employers need to do is to look beyond the surface to understand what these outstanding candidates truly have to offer. At IAI, we involve our senior most leadership in our staffing and selection process to ensure that the aptitudes and abilities of military-experienced talent are recognized and brought to the forefront. I applaud the work of the Miami Valley Veterans & Employers Connection as well as the work of Dan Semsel’s team, Mr. Knowles and Ms. Richardson to support the needs of our veterans and efforts to reduce veteran unemployment in the Greater Miami Valley.”
“IAI has a long history of being recognized as a top tier employer for veterans and reservists,” said Mr. Jugus. “IAI was recognized April as a 2014 Most Valuable Employer for Military winner by CivilianJobs.com. We are also a past recipient of a Freedom Award and a Pro Patria award by the Employer Support for Guard and Reserve and a charter member of the Freedom Award Society. We value all of the veterans, reservists and members of the national guard who are part of the IAI family and encourage other employers to reach out and to recognize the strong enabling and technical skill sets that this group of talented men and women bring to the workplace.”
Following the workshop, attendees were invited to join company leadership and IAI employees for a wood-fire pizza themed leadership lunch and team building activity. The event, which was held in the parking lot outside of IAI’s Beavercreek office, was catered Bella Sorella Pizza, Dayton’s first mobile wood-fired pizza oven food truck.
