Pittsburgh Veteran
Employer Coalition

Since late 2017, a dedicated group of employers in the Greater Pittsburgh region has convened with the aim to make the region the best place in the country for veterans to work and thrive. Local employers of all types, alongside support of The Heinz Endowments, have gathered regularly over the past 18 months to collaborate and share model practices to recruit and hire military-connected talent, maximize the value of veterans in the workplace, and leverage Pittsburgh’s higher education institutions to develop a robust military talent pipeline into the community.

Today, this group has formed into the Pittsburgh Veteran Employer Coalition (PVEC) comprised and led by companies committed to working together to attract military talent to Greater Pittsburgh, support the development of military hiring and development initiatives, and share best practices to recruit and retain veterans in their companies.
