#Hire a #Vet
Agile. Adaptable. Resilient. Loyal. These were just a few of the adjectives used to describe U.S. military veterans during the Integrating Veteran Talent Into Human Capital Strategy forum held at the New York Stock Exchange this past November. The event brought together human resources and other executives from Wall Street and Corporate America with top military brass, active and retired, and the veterans themselves to discuss not only the benefits of hiring them but also how to ease the process of doing so. GE, whose affinity network has 10,000 members, plans to hire 5,000 veterans during the next five years, according to retired U.S. Air Force Senior Master Sergeant Joseph Beal, vice president of Enterprise & Operational Risk at GE Energy Financial Services. He maintained that “if you put everything together with great leadership support, you will see that the program doesn’t cost much.”
