Great article published by Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) which makes a Compelling Business Case for Veteran Recruiting.
Our mission will be to Educate hiring managers on the strengths of this community & our service!
You'll find a lot of good resources linked within the article as well.
Couple of highlights:
“Certainly, it’s just the right thing to do,” says Ken Bouyer, EY Americas director of inclusiveness recruiting, who heads the company’s veterans recruiting program. “But for us, when we look at the skills these veterans bring, their experiences, their insight, their ability to work in a team, their strong work ethic—all these things translate into what we do as a firm as we serve our clients. We’ve benefited immensely from having their perspective and point of view.”
Uncertainty about hiring veterans is often based on a lack of knowledge about the military or misconceptions gleaned from Hollywood stereotypes, says Peter Gudmundsson, CEO of Cincinnati-based RecruitMilitary, which helps employers recruit and retain veterans. --
