SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In acknowledgment of Veterans Day, WTAS renews its commitment to recruiting and supporting employees who have served in the military. WTAS appreciates the sacrifices made by members of the military and acknowledges that gratitude by providing access to quality education, job training and career opportunities. The Firm understands the value Veterans bring to the workplace, including practiced leadership skills, commitment, discipline, ability to perform under pressure and a solid work ethic – the same qualities and core values that make WTAS employees successful.
"We believe that hiring Veterans is mutually beneficial for those individuals and the Firm. We are actively engaged in efforts to expand our Veterans initiative and aspire to foster success stories for Veterans," said Recruiting Committee Chair, Jim Raaf.
To show WTAS' commitment to Veterans, the Firm has established an initiative to actively recruit Veterans at the internship level, groom them through hands-on experience and training, provide them with tuition assistance and flexibility in their schedules to attend classes, and prepare them for careers as tax associates.
"The commitment to personal excellence, values and responsibility are part of the military service culture," commented Managing Director and Navy Veteran Richard Morisky. "These are some of the qualities that WTAS looks for in candidates and, in turn, we are able to offer unique opportunities to our individuals."
The Firm has expanded its veteran headcount by 33% in 2012 and anticipates similar growth in the coming years.
