Hire a Veteran Day

According to SHRM, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, “In 2020, 18.5 million men and women were veterans, accounting for about 7 percent of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population ages 18 and older. ZipRecruiter and the Call of Duty Endowment1 reports that veterans are 15.6 percent more likely than non-veterans job seekers to be underemployed.

Veterans can help raise a company’s workforce to the next level in many areas, including: Leadership and teamwork. Military service creates individuals who work to earn the respect of their peers and understand how to bring people together to pursue strategic, common goals. Problem-solving and decision-making.

According to Hire a Veteran Day Founder Dan Caporale, “The best way to honor a veteran is to hire one.”

An Orion Talent’s 2018 Veteran Hiring Survey found that candidates with military experience are more likely to be hired, more likely to accept a job offer, and more likely to stay at the company for a longer period of time than those without a military background.
