Veterans, including those with disabilities, offer skills that any smart employer would be eager to tap into, including the ability to adapt and learn quickly, work as part of a team and get the job done. This webinar will bring together experts from the Federal Government, Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs) and private industry to discuss effective strategies employers can use to recruit, hire, advance and retain disabled veterans. Speakers will highlight recruitment tools and resources as well as proactive steps employers can take to make sure veterans can thrive on the job. Information shared will be applicable to all employers, but may be of particular interest to federal contractors seeking strategies for achieving their goals under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act.
