I have to say nay on this but not because I think a reward program won't work but because I don't think we should have such a program. Why should someone be rewarded for simply doing what's right? Do we reward someone because they didn't steal or because they didn't kill someone? Sure, it's good to reward people for the good as well as punish for the bad but when are humans going to learn that the reward we get from doing the right thing is peace of mind and a calm and happy heart? Reward programs for hiring vets has been done and yet today we're still needing to ask if a reward program will get more vets hired. Every person needs to be hired based on the skills they bring to the bargaining table. If faced with equal skills and the employer doesn't hire the vet, does the vet want to be hired because of an employer "reward" or because the employer WANTED the vet? Of course each of us has our own response but I'd rather be hired for ME than because of some incentive quota.
