Cranston, RI (May 24, 2024) – Gannon & Scott is proud to be featured in a recent issue of Providence Business News (PBN), "These R.I. Employers Rallying the Ex-Troops," for its efforts in hiring and supporting veterans in the workplace.

Bill Hamilton, Managing Editor at PBN, recognized the commendable veteran hiring practices following a press release sent out last month about upholding a commitment to veterans. Hamilton saw this as an opportunity to place Gannon & Scott in PBN's veterans in the workplace feature.
