ARServices Receives Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program Certification

Company reinforces dedication and commitment to hiring and supporting veterans.


Alexandria, VirginiaDecember 13, 2017 – ARServices, a purpose-built government contractor and the contractor of choice for the government and defense sectors, has received Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program Certification, illustrating and reinforcing the company’s commitment to hiring veterans.

To achieve V3 Certification, ARServices needed to demonstrate its dedication to the recruitment, hiring and retention of veterans to the Commonwealth of Virginia. It did so by pledging to hire a significant number of veterans in the 2018 calendar year, and working to train their human resources staff in best practices for recruiting, hiring and retaining veterans.

In addition to this training and its pledge to hire veterans, ARServices was also required to take steps to ensure the company could accurately track and measure progress towards meeting recruitment goals. It also had to work to ensure that the workplace was conducive to veterans and their unique needs.

In this capacity, the company established veteran, reservist, guardsmen, and military spouse cohorts and recognition programs to make the transition to the private sector easier for military veterans. The company also launched an entity comprised of veterans to both act as advocates for veteran issues and assist in recruitment and retention.

“Veterans from the United States Armed Forces often struggle to find employment in the private sector and transition back into civilian life despite their sacrifice and service to our nation,” said Jay McCargo, President and CEO of ARServices. “By joining the V3 Program, ARServices is reaffirming its commitment and dedication to recruiting, hiring and retaining veterans – not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s good business.”

McCargo further explained, “Veterans are strong leaders that are accountable, possess outstanding work ethics and are capable of working well in teams. This is a direct result of their military training, which fosters a strong culture of collaboration and a focus on finding unique, innovative and effective solutions to problems and challenges.”
