Hiring military veterans will diversify your workforce and set your agency up for success by employing individuals with strong leadership and problem-solving skills who thrive in a team setting. On the other hand, veterans benefit from continuing to actively contribute to public service while serving as strong government employees. They also help build diverse and capable teams. Join IPMA-HR and Carmen Gamble, IPMA-SCP as she discusses veterans returning to the civilian workforce. Gamble will discuss its impact on public agencies, employee retention, and their communities.
