During certain times of the year, we take time to remember and appreciate those who have served in the US military. However, as HR professionals, there’s much more we can do to support and give back to these brave members who have given so much for our country. The SHRM Foundation is offering a new education program, the Veterans at Work Certificate, for HR professionals that will teach best practices to attract, hire, and retain veterans. Read on to learn how you can support those who have served through this program.
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.
