Program 1 - MC-SHRM Members Only Special Topic (MOST) 2:15*PM-3:35PM (*Registration 2:15PM-10:25PM)
Presented by: Charles Bischoff, Employment Coordinator, NextOp - Houston Area
One thing that separates a good company from a great company is the talent of their workforce, yet most businesses struggle to capitalize on what is decidedly their most valuable asset.
In a study of over 2,500 hiring managers, results indicated that 1 in 5 new hires were considered to be unsuitable for their company. Former service members are consistently more productive, more safety conscious, and more likely to stay with a company long term. Companies can experience immediate bottom-line benefit by employing these high-performing, technically capable, and reliable team players.
Participant Learning Objectives:
- Ascertain best practices for military recruiting
- Identify how to locate military talent
- Discern how to retain your veterans
- Discover work opportunity tax credit
