Show-Me Heroes Chamber Challenge Launched
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - Gov. Jay Nixon is issuing a challenge to local chambers of commerce to encourage their members to take the Show-Me Heroes pledge and actively recruit veterans and service members for available positions. The Show-Me Heroes Chamber Challenge will be administered by the Missouri Division of Workforce Development.
"A little friendly competition can go a long way, especially when everyone wins," Gov. Nixon said in a release. "Four years ago we launched the Show-Me Heroes initiative to help connect our veterans with good jobs in their communities. Today, we're taking that another step forward and asking local chambers of commerce to get involved and help spread the word that our service men and women make excellent, highly-skilled employees."
The Show-Me Heroes program, established by Gov. Nixon in January 2010, is designed to connect military veterans with job opportunities when they return home from service. Administered by the Missouri Division of Workforce Development, Show-Me Heroes showcases Missouri businesses that are willing and eager to hire veterans.
Businesses participating in the Show-Me Heroes program sign a pledge to ramp up efforts to reach out to, recruit and interview veterans for job openings at their business. To date, more than 4,100 Missouri businesses have taken the Show-Me Heroes pledge and have reported hiring more than 7,100 highly-skilled, highly-trained job seekers who have served in the military.
With tens of thousands of Missouri businesses belonging to their local chambers of commerce, the Show-Me Heroes Chamber Challenge is an initiative to increase participation in the state's premier Veteran and Service Member workforce development program.
By encouraging members to participate, chambers of commerce will work to become certified bronze, silver, or gold Show-Me Heroes Chambers. The challenge levels are based on the percentage of membership participation with 10 percent earning the chamber the bronze recognition, 30 percent earning the chamber the silver recognition, and 50 percent or more earning the chamber the gold recognition.
