Dave Harrison, Fastport’s Executive Director of Workforce Development and Government Relations, sat down with Emily McCrary-Ruiz-Esparza, a contributing editor and journalist, for a fireside chat discussing how organizations can take the next step in their military recruiting and retention mission.
Corporate employers want to hire military veterans, yet many of them don’t know the best ways to find, recruit, and retain them. Employers have good reason to value military veterans, who possess technical and teamwork skills, including leadership qualities and rapid decision-making, along with an emphasis on safety and dependability. These skills, along with many others, create an incredible potential employee in any industry. Right now, more than 60% of currently employed military veterans are looking for new jobs, many of them with urgency. This webinar will offer attendees advice, tools, and resources that will be actionable no matter where you are in the process of creating a military hiring program–whether you’re starting from scratch or enhancing existing efforts to meet today’s recruiting and retention challenges.
