April 13, 2023

Greater Rochester Chamber has earned a designation as a VETS Indexes Recognized Employer in the 2023 VETS Indexes Employer Awards, presented by VETS Indexes. The award recognizes the organization’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, retaining, developing, and supporting veterans and the military-connected community.


VETS Indexes is a leading voice on veteran employment issues, overseeing the VETS Indexes Employer Awards, hosting the twice-yearly Employing U.S. Vets Conference, unearthing unique and unprecedented data on veteran employment through the Veteran Employment Benchmarking Service, and developing custom indexes, linked to financial products, that track the performance of the publicly traded companies that have established themselves as the best employers for veterans.


“Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce has demonstrated a commitment to recruiting veteran and military-connected employees, and then helping them grow and develop into leaders,” said George Altman, managing director of VETS Indexes. “The number of organizations participating in the 2023 VETS Indexes Employer Awards more than doubled since last year – but even in this highly competitive environment, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce distinguished itself among veteran employers and should be commended,” Altman said.


Bob Duffy, President & CEO, Greater Rochester Chamber said, “We are honored to have been selected as a VETS Indexes Recognized Employer, and to have the opportunity to provide meaningful employment opportunities and a welcoming work environment to those who have served our country. This recognition is a true reflection of the dedication and hard work of our entire team, and we look forward to continuing our mission of serving those who have served us.”


Greater Rochester Chamber employs a number of veterans internally on our staff, but also works to create veteran friendly employers and help foster relationships between local companies and veterans through its Veterans Connect program. We are proud to support our veterans by directly connecting them to employers and job opportunities immediately as they transition from active duty to civilian life. Learn more at
