According to a 2020 SHRM Foundation report, 90% of U.S. military veterans report obstacles in attaining employment. In 2020, the SHRM Foundation and Walmart.org published a report noting that only 55% of organizations have a program related to the employment of veterans. And, as recently as September 22, 2021, Forbes reports that U.S. talent shortages are at a 10-year high. There’s something wrong with this math. Who better equipped than hiring managers to take on the dual challenge of helping veterans position themselves to start their civilian careers and at the same time create organizational strategies to better recruit, hire, engage, and retain veterans? This program will explain how to build a program to effectively recruit, hire, and retain veterans at our organization.  It has been said that the defense of this nation depends upon those willing to serve…and upon those who support that service.  Hiring managers are uniquely positioned to support that service by bridging the gap between the veteran talent pool and open positions.
