Hiring Our Heroes: Next Steps


Published on

Everyone’s talking about hiring veterans. In fact, more than 1,000 companies have signed on to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce “Hiring Our Heroes” initiative. If your company feels the commitment to hire veterans, it now falls to learning leaders to ensure that these valuable new team members are deployed as fully and effectively as possible. If your employee development strategy does not recognize the important assets and needs of veterans, you risk losing the benefits they bring. Led by one of the foremost experts in veteran transition from military active duty to civilian careers, this webinar covers what you need to know and things you can do today to develop veterans in your organization.

This interactive session will provide insights and actionable plans to engage and fully maximize the skills that veterans bring to your business. Workshop objectives include resources to:

Understand the total value of the veteran’s skill set — from a veteran.
Translate and apply those skill sets to your organization’s goals.
Create a roadmap to ensure success.
Fill the talent gaps and leadership pipeline of tomorrow.

Your company is hiring veterans; learn ways to develop, retain and transform them into your next generation of business leaders!
