The Society for Human Resource Management is working with two groups to help employers recruit and retain current and former members of the military. Read below for more information on how the
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) and the U.S. Department of Labor’s
Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) can help HR professionals find, hire and retain skilled military service members.
Hiring, Retaining Veterans Is Focus of SHRM Foundation-NAVSO ProjectThe 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.
How to Take a Tactical Approach to Veteran HiringFormer military members often face a difficult transition to civilian life. Companies seeking to hire veterans struggle with identifying skills and integrating veteran employees into the workforce. But with a little understanding and mentoring, both sides can benefit, speakers at HIREconf NYC, a recruiting conference, said recently.
DOD Program Lifts Barriers to Military Spouses' EmploymentThe 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.
Important steps to consider when getting a veterans hiring program off the ground include developing a team, identifying goals and designing the scope of the initiative.

SHRM announced its partnership with Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) by signing a Statement of Support at SHRM’s 2010 Employment Law and Legislative Conference. Through this partnership, SHRM is working with ESGR to link all state councils and chapters with their local ESGR office and encourage SHRM members to sign their own Statements of Support. As the principal advocate within the U.S. Department of Defense, ESGR’s mission is to develop and promote employer support for Guard and Reserve service by recognizing employers that offer outstanding support, increasing awareness of applicable laws, and resolving conflict between employers and service members.
www.esgr.org, has employer resources and information on signing statements of support.
SHRM has been working closely with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) to provide SHRM members with the tools they need to recognize the value of hiring veterans and ways to find qualified veteran job candidates. In addition to providing opportunities for SHRM members to hear directly from the VETS organization at SHRM conferences, we are working with VETS to develop resources specifically designed to help HR connect more easily with veterans seeking jobs in the civilian workforce.
www.dol.gov/vets, contains important information on the value of hiring a veteran and will continue to add employer resources as they are developed.
