123NET’s Strategy for Hiring Veterans

123NET, a Southfield-based telecommunications provider, has succeeded in a unique hiring strategy: hire a veteran to find more veterans. This approach was discovered unintentionally by Dan Irvin, CEO and founder of 123NET, five years ago. The strategy is simple but effective; Irvin explains, “Everybody knows a vet. Just find a friend who served.”

The Impact of the Veteran Hiring Strategy

This strategy has proven to be successful for 123NET. The company now boasts a team of 60 employees, nearly one in four of whom is a veteran. This ratio is a testament to the strategy’s effectiveness, and the value veterans bring to the 123NET team.
