"Not Just a Veteran- But Your Military Professional Employee"  

Veterans entering the civilian workforce are required to make a dramatic shift in the terminology, practices, habits, and expectations. Because they aren’t always familiar with corporate language, managers may see them as less competent or cooperative, and may have trouble connecting with them. And both the managers and their new veteran team members may be unaware of the problem because they often lack an awareness of or appreciation for the cultural and language differences.

It’s clear that employers looking to hire veterans are facing an uphill battle when it comes to retention. For their part, they need to figure out how to help the veteran employee successfully transition into their work environment. 

In this workshop we will explore how employers can help military employees by:

  • connecting and working with civilian co-workers 
  • learn new skills and concepts of daily business 
  • structuring the MOS to the employer's JD 
  • creating a military pipeline/initiative 
  • adapting to the civilian workplace within a reasonable time frame
Join Us for this informative panel discussion between the employers and the military professionals.
