The annual Employer of Veterans awards, presented by The American Legion's National Veterans Employment & Education Commission since 1969, are given to businesses across the country that have established outstanding records in employing and retaining veterans, workers with disabilities and older members of the workforce.

TimkenSteel was nominated for the national award by representatives from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, which is just one of several agencies the company works with to recruit and retain veterans.
