Earn Your Veterans at Work Certificate


Created for HR professionals, this new education program from the SHRM Foundation will focus on best practices to attract, hire, and retain veterans. Participants will earn a Certificate after completing a multi-faceted program that includes:

  • Content review
  • Online training
  • Brief quizzes
  • Pre- and post-participation surveys

The basis for the content review will be the SHRM Foundation's new guidebook, The Recruitment, Hiring, Retention & Engagement of Military Veterans, which includes:

  • A business case for hiring military and veteran candidates. This easy-to-use resource outlines the important role HR professionals and hiring managers can play in the successful transition of veterans from military service to employment.
  • Evidence-based guidelines for practice, including case studies implemented by organizations.
  • Resources and references to programs and services to augment or support veteran and military hiring initiatives.

The certification program will launch on November 14. All will be free and open to all HR professionals. Anyone holding the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential may also receive 10 professional development credits toward their recertification.
