Hiring veterans

Our veterans are certainly in the spotlight these days. At Tyonek Native Corporation, we are proud to say that over half of our 1000 employees nationwide are veterans. Although Tyonek’s veteran hire numbers are higher than most, Alaska Native and American Indian government contractors often rely upon veterans to fill their ranks. Native American companies have found veteran employees and veteran and service disabled companies to be among their most experienced and capable partners in business.

A couple of weeks ago, Senator Mark Begich chaired a Senate Democratic Leadership Committee meeting on Veterans’ Affairs and Job Creation. We were pleased to be invited to participate, along with several other organizations and companies.

It was an honor to sit with the Senate Democratic leadership and business people from around the country to talk about ways to transition veterans to the civilian work force and increase hiring and partnering on contracts. We look forward to sharing and promoting these ideas and initiatives with other Alaska Native corporation managers.

CEO, Tyonek Native Corporation
