NEWPORT CITY - Newport Furniture Parts has increased emphasis on showing the companyâ€™s appreciation of veterans and has ramped up a campaign to encourage veterans to apply for work. Human Resources Manager Kevin Deslauriers recently attended a roundtable discussion in Washington D.C. with the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee.
Newport Furniture Parts was the only Vermont firm represented at the committee hearing and it was also the smallest firm.
â€śWe want to show our appreciation for those who served our country,â€ť said Deslauriers. â€śItâ€™s an opportunity for employment and our way to say more than thank you; come be a part of our family.â€ť
