March's Topic:

 

Our third webinar in our 2014 series is titled "Best Practices for Recruiting Veterans in Virginia:  Making Virginia Vet Strong".   This Third Wednesday Webinar will take place 2 pm-3 pm EDT on March 19th.

 

One of Virginia's most valuable assets is its labor force.  Comparatively, Virginia's workforce is well educated, highly skilled, agile, healthy, and affordable.  Managers of businesses and industries across the Commonwealth often share their stories about how efficient and effective Virginia workers are.  Company managers in Virginia often report that turnover is lower and productivity is higher than it is at sister operations in other states or in other countries.  Yet company hiring managers also express concerns about what appears to be a limited or a shrinking labor pool.  Some wonder if they will be able to find qualified workers with the needed skill sets and the work ethic to replace jobs vacated by retirees or to fill positions as new production lines are added.

 

This webinar will draw your attention to one of America's finest pool of workers - our veterans - and will discuss how veterans represent a powerful, ready-made human resource whose skills, talents, and abilities can be re-purposed to serve today's companies.  You will hear how companies can revamp their workforce by implementing best practices and processes to become veteran friendly; often through small but meaningful adjustments in approaches to recruiting, hiring, training and retaining.  You will learn what steps can be taken to intentionally create a culture that becomes Veteran Strong.
