MISO Recognized for its Advocacy for Veteran Employment
VETS Indexes named MISO a Recognized Employer
Karen King - 04/11/2024

On the heels of being named one of the best places to work in Indiana, MISO has been honored as a 2024 VETS Indexes Recognized Employer. The award recognizes an organization’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, retaining, developing and supporting veterans and the military-connected community.

MISO’s Veterans Resource Group (VRG), an employee-created and lead group, works closely with MISO leadership to develop recruiting and training initiatives that support career and talent development for veterans.

“MISO recognizes the skills and leadership know-how veterans bring to the workplace,” said Daryl Brown, executive director, external affairs, and executive sponsor of VRG. “We take immense pride in the recognition we received from Vets Indexes as it highlights MISO's ongoing commitment to fostering an inclusive and supportive workplace.”

VRG efforts both within and outside of MISO over the past two years have resulted in a robust program offering employee focused lunch and learns, support for a local Pets Healing Vets program and recognizing the contributions of our veteran employees. Within our communities, the VRG connects employees with veteran service organizations, offers flag retirement services and participates in veteran-focused recruiting events like the Student Veterans of America national conference.

MISO is extremely proud of this VETS Indexes achievement earned in just the two short years our VRG has been active. Credit is due to our dedicated employees and leaders who recognize the importance of supporting veterans through their career transitions.
