Hiring and incorporating veterans for a stronger workplace culture.
This fall NH Business Review is making it our mission to bridge perceived disconnects between the structure and demands of a civilian workplace and the chain of command in the military, National Guard and Reserves. This event digs into why hiring an employee with a military background can bring great value to your company and culture, and offers specific tactics for making it a high-value experience for all involved.
Join our virtual discussion that will address how employers can approach talent acquisition and establish employee retention with workers who have service backgrounds or who are in the National Guard or Reserves. Our interactive panel of veterans, representatives from notable veteran resource groups and HR professionals will discuss how employers can adapt their mindset and organizational system to benefit from this group of loyal workers.
The discussion will be followed by virtual networking that allows veterans and service members to connect with employers.
