Workplace Application:
You will learn how to implement the critical components of a successful Veteran Hiring Program that’s both scalable and sustainable.  

250,000 service members transition from the military every year, and while many companies recognize the value these veterans bring to the workforce they may struggle to implement a successful veteran employment program. Whether you are looking to hire one veteran or 1,000, you need to know how to source, attract, and hire the right candidate –

with the right skills. More importantly, it’s essential that you implement an effective onboarding process while instilling a culture that fosters both engagement and retention. Imagine the time, money and reputation you can save your organization if you create a program that helps your veteran employees succeed while simultaneously supporting your business goals. During this session, you will learn:

  • How to manage the hiring process from recruiting to resume, interview to onboarding. (Where to source, how to identify skill-sets, structuring the offer, and how to purposefully onboard your new hire) 
  • How to cultivate a military-friendly culture and work environment that leads to retention and productivity.  (Breaking down stereo-types, dispelling myths, and creating an environment of diversity, inclusion and belonging).
