HR and business leaders shared what their companies are doing to attract, hire and retain military veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses at the Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM's) INCLUSION 2020 virtual conference.

Should Military Spouses Have to Sacrifice Their Careers?
Military spouses may have to move as often as every two years. Many say employers are biased against them because of gaps in their employment history, and they often are either excluded from veterans' hiring initiatives or lumped into programs that don't account for their unique obstacles.

The HireVets tool includes a nationwide candidate database, a military skills translator and candidate-matching technology to link veterans with positions that best match their skills.

HR professionals and employers need to take the time to understand military culture and the military perspective in order to effectively recruit and hire veterans.

DOD Program Lifts Barriers to Military Spouses' Employment
The Department of Defense’s (DOD’s) Military Spouse Employment Partnership works with companies and other organizations to provide employment resources—career counseling, job listings, and resume and cover letter templates—for military spouses who register with the program. It is open to spouses, DOD civilians and family members.

With as many as 360,000 men and women leaving military service each year, more companies need to create programs to recruit veterans, many of whom have the skills needed to help address talent shortages across a range of functions and industries.

Nearly three-fourths of post-Sept. 11 veterans believe it would take them longer to find a job than an equally qualified nonvet, according to a new poll.
