Founder & Executive Director
What does being a veteran friendly organization mean? What does it look like? In this presentation we will hear from current veterans on what attracted them to their organization, why they accepted their offer, and what has kept them with their organization. We will look at trends and statistics surrounding veteran employment and veteran under-employment. We will also talk about best practices for veteran employee/affinity groups and veteran hiring initiatives. Join us for this session to discuss what we know about veterans, what we think we know about veterans, and what we need to know about veterans.
This session has been approved for 1.0 hours of SHRM and HRCI Certification Credit.
