The U.S. hiring model is one where employers typically fill positions with employees who already possess qualifications for a specific position. This is contrary to what veterans experience in the military where they join the military and are then trained to perform a specialty. Veterans possess many attributes that enhance a workforce. Many veterans also have benefits available from the Department of Veterans Affairs which can assist them in learning needed job skills- often at no cost to employers. Let’s change the conversation from providing veterans a “job” to hiring veterans to enhance your productivity, workforce morale and long term success. You will learn how several successful companies have created veteran hiring programs to fill their open positions.
