The Strength of the Nation: Your Corporate Advantage


Published on

More than 1 million military service members are due to enter the civilian workforce in the coming years. These U.S. military veterans represent a powerful potential workforce advantage for corporate America, because they bring significant skills and knowledge, such as leadership, discipline, focus and ability to work well in teams. Yet, there’s evidence that corporate America has not yet figured out how to deploy this talented force. This presentation will address the startling numbers that describe the slow integration of U.S. veterans back into the civilian workforce and provide strategies for creating and managing a veteran workforce strategy.
