Client Solution Architects Achieves Virginia Values Veterans Certification

By September 20, 2022 No Comments

September 20, 2022. FAIRFAX, Va. — Client Solution Architects LLC (CSA), a leading enterprise IT and mission-centric training firm, recently achieved the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) certification. The certification is awarded by the Commonwealth of Virginia to private employers committed to recruiting, hiring, training and retaining veterans and military spouses. 

“CSA was founded by a service-disabled veteran 18 years ago and has since had a long history of supporting and participating in outreach events highlighting veterans,” said Trinity Lefler, CSA’s director of human resources. “CSA values the unique skill sets, experience and knowledge veterans bring to the workforce, and this certification formalizes CSA’s commitment to veterans and military members transitioning to civilian life.” 

The V3 certification is a statewide initiative under the Virginia Department of Veterans Services designed to encourage private employers to incorporate dedicated hiring, training and retention processes for military veterans and spouses. 

“There are anywhere from 160,000 to 200,000 veterans discharged annually,” said Lefler. “Many are overwhelmed by the challenges of transitioning back to civilian life, while numerous organizations are unfamiliar and unprepared to hire these veterans—challenged by stigmas around hiring veterans—which is where V3 steps in. The V3 Program offers invaluable training that breaks down biases and makes hiring and employing veterans more accessible through veteran workforce best practices.” 

The V3 Program was launched in 2012 and has certified over 2,000 companies and hired nearly 100,000 veterans throughout the Commonwealth. The V3 Program is organized under the directorate of Veterans Education, Training and Employment (VETE) within the Virginia Department of Veterans Services. 

CSA encourages other companies to join V3 to become a military-friendly hiring organization and to gain access to veterans and military spouses through hiring events, job fairs and transition programs. To learn more visit dvsv3.com or email v3t@dvs.virginia.gov 

About Virginia Values Veterans (V3) 

The Commonwealth of Virginia has one of the youngest Veterans population in the United States, and the fastest growing Veteran labor force in the United States. Thousands of new Veterans enter Virginia’s workforce each year, and that number is projected to rise in the coming years. While many employers are unaware of the value Veterans can bring to their workforce, thousands more are seeking to hire Veterans as a part of their workforce but don’t know how. The V3 Program not only aims to educate and train companies on why it is a good business decision to recruit, hire, train, and retain Veterans, but also to help those committed companies meet their hiring goals.
