The U.S. military and its culture can be quite foreign to civilians, especially those who have no close personal or family ties to the armed forces. 84% of veterans say the American public has “little awareness” of their challenges, and 71% of Americans say they do not understand the problems faced by those who have served since 9/11. Without a firm understanding of our military, how can your staff, hiring managers and leadership truly create a military-friendly work environment and successfully onboard and retain veterans? The veteran pool is an incredible source of job talent for you, but you first have to understand their backgrounds.
