The SHRM Foundation and the National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations (NAVSO) have launched a multiyear research project to find ways to support organizations in hiring and retaining military veterans at the local and national levels.
Helping Employers, Helping Veterans
Participants are now analyzing data from the summit, according to Ford. He said the project could include creating an online information portal and a series of webinars to educate employers on hiring veterans. The information that will be available to employers, Ford said, will help "build a better business case for hiring veterans."[SHRM members-only toolkit: Becoming a Military-Ready Employer]In addition to helping employers find qualified veterans, the project will focus on how to move veterans through the hiring process and integrate them into the workforce. Mark Schmit, the SHRM Foundation's executive director, noted the role human resource professionals can play."HR practitioners are uniquely skilled to ensure veterans are productively employed and integrated into the workforce in a way that serves both them and their families, as well as the organizations employing them," Schmit said in a news release.SHRM has a history of working on behalf of veterans. In 2012, SHRM partnered with the White House on a military family leave initiative. The SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition and Talent Management Conference have featured sessions focused on recruiting and hiring veterans, and SHRM chapters and state councils have created award-winning programs that focus on veterans. SHRM online resources include a Military Employment Resource Page.About 30 organizations have said they want to be involved in the research project, according to McFarland. Those interested in participating may contact Dorothy Mebane, programs manager at the SHRM Foundation
