Each year, more than 200,000 military service members leave active duty and enter the civilian workforce, and American businesses are finding real value in transitioning these veteran candidates into their organizations.
Beyond their technical proficiencies, veterans have vital skills that benefit businesses of every size – leadership, innovation and a steadfast commitment to get the job done. In fact, our 2016 survey of human resources professionals showed that veterans have joined women and college graduates as a top-three recruitment priority.
Hiring veterans is not just good for our country, it’s a smart decision for American businesses and the economy.
