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
This webinar will draw your
attention to one of America's finest pool of workers - our veterans - and

implementing best practices and processes to become veteran friendly; often
