Employers recognize the strengths, skills and qualities veterans bring to the workplace. In fact, many employers actively recruit veterans and identify themselves as "Military Friendly." They can also receive tax credits for employing veterans. These are all positive steps toward increasing veteran employment. However, there is still something missing in the bridge between the military and civilian worlds for the veteran on this journey—the role the employer plays in creating a veteran-informed culture for the workplace. People working in a veteran-informed culture can understand, identify and address the gaps that may exist as a result of differences in the military and civilian environments. HR\u0027s role in creating a veteran-informed culture will help both the transitioning veteran, the manager/supervisor and the company.
