    Employing U.S. Vets Conference

    Attend the Employing U.S. Vets Conference on September 24, 7:30am-6pm. The event – co-hosted by VETS Indexes and the Military Times – will include discussions of best practices and challenges related to veteran employment, recognition of companies going above and beyond for vets and their families and lots of opportunities to network.

    More troops than ever are transitioning from the military and seeking civilian careers. There are about 27 million people in the military-connected community, including active duty personnel, reservists, military families and veterans. This vast talent pool represents significant opportunities for organizations looking to hire qualified and hard-working employees and has become an integral segment of the Human Capital portion of the Social pillar within Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG). But to take advantage, companies need to know their stuff.

    This one-day, annual event features dynamic speakers and panel discussions with nationally recognized employers distinguished for strong track records in veterans’ employment. Military Times reporters and editors will help lead the discussions. Their experts will explore cutting-edge topics such as:

    • Successful Veteran Hiring
    • New Careers Post-Service
    • Creating a Strong Veteran Culture
    • Retaining Veterans
    • Team-building and Leadership Skills of Veterans
    • Veterans’ Technical Skills
    • Supporting Employees in the National Guard or Reserves
    • Veteran Employee Resource Groups
    • Military Spouse and Family Support
    • How Veterans Fill a Unique Space within Diversity and Inclusion
    • Resolving Barriers to Employment

    The conference is designed to offer attendees actionable tools and information to establish and build upon veteran initiatives. It will also provide a great opportunity to network with peers from leading companies.
