“Come prepared to share your experiences and learn from your peers”

People are the greatest asset an organization can invest in. Companies can acquire valuable employees by hiring military veterans. However, many employers are unaware of how to find and hire veterans, and what types of programs are necessary to ensure a successful onboarding.  In this Roundtable, attendees will share their own experiences and learn from peers regarding  best practices for hiring, developing and supporting veterans.
