To Be Determined



250,000 service members transition out of the military every year, and many companies recognize the value that our veterans bring to the workforce. But creating a military-friendly work environment and thoughtful onboarding process is critical if you want to attract and retain veterans, and that takes dedicated effort. Imagine the time, money and reputation you can save your organization if you create a program that helps your veteran employees succeed!


In this presentation you will learn how to implement the successful aspects of proven veteran hiring programs. This includes the variety of public and private resources to fill your veteran pipeline; interviewing veterans in an impactful manner; providing the proper orientation for new hires; how to create a veteran employee resource group; the value of veteran mentors and how to develop a mentorship program; the importance of community collaboration and easy ways to embrace that; how to effectively brand and market yourself as military-friendly; ways to support your veteran employees on a recurring basis; and understanding military deployments challenges and how you can support your deployed employees.
