Workplace Spotlight: Veterans in the Workplace

November 7, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Association of Women's Busness Centers

Hiring candidates that work well under extreme amounts of pressure, have quickly learned many skills in a short amount of time, and possess strong leadership skills can strengthen any company and help meet business demands.  That’s just what military veteran candidates offer.  However, hiring managers who have not served may not understand the transferable skills veterans bring to their industry.

Every service member who spends time in the military will eventually move into corporate America and make the transition.  How you approach veterans can go a long way towards helping in their transition and also allowing managers to hire some extremely talented individuals onto their teams.

Join us for the next event in our Workplace Spotlight webcast series and get insights on how HR professionals can help newly transitioned military veterans. Building business resource groups, providing a clear career path and developing a mentorship can help turn your new hire into a valuable, long-term employee and/or leader in your organization.
