VTC Veteran Tax Credits and Sales Platoon announce partnership
VTC Veteran Tax Credits, a national company that partners with both the Veteran and employer to certify and leverage Veteran Tax Credits, part of the Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC) program and Sales Platoon, an Illinois-based company focused on sales training and placement for transitioning military service members, are excited to announce their new partnership.
Through the partnership, the two organizations will promote the benefits of hiring highly-skilled Veterans in order to increase the number of companies who hire them. Additionally, they will educate both Veterans and employers on the benefits available to them through the WOTC, which gives employers up to $9600 per Veteran hired to reinvest back into their business.
“Although we approach it from different angles, our missions are very much aligned – to transform the perception of our Veterans as a population in need, to one in demand. Craig and his team at VTC Veteran Tax Credits, have streamlined a complicated system, simplifying the process for Veterans to certify their status and providing businesses with a streamlined platform to track and receive tax credits” said Raleigh Wilkins, Founder of Sales Platoon.
Sales Platoon’s unique boot-camp model combines 14 weeks of sales training and apprenticeship at no cost to the veteran, de-risking critical sales hires for participating companies. VTC’s unique tax credit certification further reduces the cost basis for acquiring Sales Platoon’s talent, while also providing businesses access to VTC’s database of carefully curated prospective candidates across the full spectrum of military experience.
“Fully preparing our Veterans to enter the civilian workforce takes a team” said VTC’s CEO, Craig Washburn. “One of the most financially rewarding careers available to our transitioning leaders is the sales profession. I am so honored to be partnering with Sales Platoon in this endeavor. Another Veteran Owned Small Business giving back by preparing Veterans that want to enter the sales profession with the tools to not only succeed, but thrive!
