Veterans in the Workplace aims to educate business leaders and human resource (HR) professionals how to effectively source and support veteran hiring in the workplace. A part of Maryland Chamber’s MD Spotlight series, this event will focus on identifying, attracting and filling in-demand roles with top talent.

Each year over 200,000 service members return to civilian life creating a large pool of talent that may not be top of mind for all employers. Tapping into the knowledge and perspective of service members transitioning to the civilian workforce has proven to be a successful strategy in workforce development. There is a tremendous opportunity for employers to look to the expertise of veterans and utilize their skill sets.

The Maryland Chamber of Commerce is bringing together military personnel, employers, educational institutions and workforce development professionals to discuss:

  • the array of benefits that come with hiring veterans
  • what civilian business professionals can learn from military ethos and mindset
  • success stories of businesses with programs and initiatives aimed at educating and hiring veterans
  • resources and tools that are currently available to assist with implementation of successful programs within businesses

As a business community, let’s work together to improve upon the employment processes and opportunities for transitioning veterans. Together, we can continue to make Maryland a stronger state.
