Toolkit Aids in Hiring Veterans

It includes definitions for military-connected talent: veterans, guard, reservists, spouses, and other supporting family members.

A free toolkit to help civilian employers hire military veterans made its debut April 30 during the Society for Human Resource Management talent management conference at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. The 32-page toolkit describes 10 steps to follow to recruit and retain military veterans.

It includes definitions for military-connected talent: veterans, guard, reservists, spouses, and other supporting family members. Highlights include:

  • resources to find military veterans seeking private-sector employment
  • resources for translating military skills into skills that civilian employers can understand
  • tips for creating a military-ready or veteran-hiring organizational culture
  • what employers need to know about military talent and military families
  • what employers need to know about related employment laws and compliance

The guide includes case study examples of award-winning initiatives from SHRM chapters and state councils (SHRM Pinnacle Award winners) across the United States, as well as initiatives highlighted in the Employer Support for the Military Community study by the Families and Work Institute. The toolkit was prepared for SHRM by Sherrill A. Curtis, SPHR, principal and creative director for Curtis Consulting Group LLC in East Rutherford, N.J.
