  1. 1. Rush University Medical Center Information Services Department Hiring Veterans
  2. 2. Veteran Numbers • 21.2 million Americans are veterans • 9.8 million of those veterans are in the workforce • In the coming years we can expect over a million more service-members to reintegrate into society • 44% of veterans have “readjustment difficulties” – Social isolation – Mental health issues – Physical and psychological disability
  3. 3. The cost… • Depression alone could cost the nation 83.1 billion dollars per year • Major depressive disorder, PTSD, and generalized anxiety disorder are significantly associated with decreased time management and work output. • Further research on the topic would be beneficial in determining fiscal workforce consequences
  4. 4. Getting Help Lack of Benefits Knowledge • Over 50% of veterans have little to no understanding of the benefits that are due to them • Only 56% of this generation’s veterans are using the VA for their healthcare • Veteran’s benefits are being explained during demobilization process when emotions are overwhelming
  5. 5. Social Withdrawal • Social isolation and withdrawal are common symptoms among reintegrating veterans • Military units create uncommonly strong bonds. • With military separation comes the loss of an entire culture as well as many friendships.
  6. 6. Service Opportunities • Service opportunities are helping veterans regain their sense of purpose. • 92% of recent veterans desire to give something back to the community • “Once you have that attitude, that instilled character to serve your nation, to contribute to the greater cause, the greater purpose, it never leaves you”
  7. 7. Information Services Hiring Vets • Identify veterans through various partnerships – VA – Various Illinois Veterans Programs – Patients – Word of mouth – Vendor consortium • Interview • Provide Training • Get them a job – somewhere else
