Steffes is honored to be awarded with the “Veteran Support Business of the Year”. This award is given to any business that has demonstrated significant support to the veteran community in the past year.
The Strom Center at Dickinson State University hosted the Veteran Entrepreneurship Awards Nominations on November 11th, 2015. The goal of this award ceremony is to better serve the needs of veterans in the community who are looking to become independent business men and women and to recognize those who have gone before them in this pursuit.
Steffes supports military veterans, active reservists and guardsman through employee recognition, community support, recruitment and outreach. Steffes employs ~36 military veterans, guardsman and reservists in various roles throughout the company, which represents 12% of the employee population.
Each November Steffes recognizes and celebrates military veterans by hosting a luncheon with members of our company’s leadership team. Employees can share stories and make connections that may otherwise be lost. This event provides an environment for people to share memories, talk about the most interesting things they have seen or done and connect with others that have had similar experiences.
