According to OFCCP, contractors have two choices in setting a VEVRAA benchmark to evaluate the hiring and representation of protected #veterans in the #workforce, while actively engaging in outreach efforts to recruit qualified veterans for their organizations.
· They can use the annual national percentage (5.9 percent), or
· Contractors can establish their own customized benchmark. Go to https://bit.ly/2nrIJ3q for more information.
