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

- Retaining Veterans
- Team-building and Leadership Skills of Veterans
- Veterans’ Technical Skills
- Supporting Employees in the National Guard or Reserves
