“Why Military Hiring Programs Fail and How to Ensure Yours Does Not”
There are many great reasons to include Military Veterans in your recruitment strategy, but charity should never be one of them. Military experienced talent brings a wide array of tangible and intangible skills to the workplace and smart organizations know what to look for. Learn from the experts on how to not only find, but more importantly retain the best Veterans and Spouses that will take your company to the next level.
In this presentation, we will do a deep dive into the following topics and frequently asked questions:
- What does the Veteran population look like?
- Why should your company hire them?
- What work categories and skills cross over from the military to civilian industry?
- What are Veterans looking for in a company?
- How to retain this high caliber talent pool.
Rob Arndt is Head of Partnerships at Shift.org where he and the team help Veterans navigate successful career changes and redefine the way that organizations connect to non-traditional, military experienced talent.
Rob is a 14-year Veteran of the United States Marine Corps, who had served in military campaigns in Kuwait and Iraq before reporting to a duty assignment in Marine Corps Recruitment & Retention that paved the road for where he is today. Rob provides a vast wealth of knowledge regarding the full military lifecycle from entering the military, serving in it, recruiting for it, exiting the service and now providing resources to those who served in their quest for post military success. Rob and the Shift Team have leveraged decades of insider connections, partnerships with military bases, and expansive online communities to build a diverse and talented pool of military veterans who want to find their next mission in companies just like yours.
