The 200,000 service members annually retiring or separating from the military offer tremendous potential to the supply chain - an industry embroiled in a severe labor shortage.
Why? Because persons serving in the military gain a host of professional skills highly valued by civilian operations. Among them, the ability to build and work within teams, leadership, effective problem solving, strategic planning, effective communications, and flexibility. Further, because logistics are critical to every branch of the U.S. armed forces, members are steeped in material handling, management, distribution and transportation.
However, many civilian companies often don't know where to start when it comes to recruiting, hiring or retaining former military personnel (and their spouses). To help connect employers to veterans and serve the needs of both, a variety of programs, services and incentives are offered at the state and national level including:
- Assistance with filling job openings
- Organization of job fairs and hiring events
- Training for hiring authorities
- Employer awards and work opportunity tax credits
Ideal for operations managers, hiring managers, human resources department and others, learn more about the benefits veterans bring to your operations and your bottom line in this 30-minute VETS to WERC webinar.
