Through Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services' Operation Service to Employment, we offer solutions to bridge the civilian-military culture gap to inform and impact workplace hiring. Our Workforce Solutions educational program is designed to aid hiring managers across companies recruit and retain veterans and military family members. Annually, we lead sessions educating nearly 340 leaders on creating a culture that attracts and retains high-performing veterans.
As part of one of our five focus areas, Workforce Development and Career Placement, Operation Service to Employment is one of our workstreams helping organizations and institutions with programs that recruit, integrate, train, and retain transitioning service members, veterans and military families.
As our team uses research and experience to provide influence, share ideas, and build & sustain actions that organizations use to impact veterans, we rely on others to provide services to the individual service members or veterans. For example, as we are working with employers, the Department of Defense continues to improve its practices preparing the service members for successful transition.
You can learn more about the challenges of transitioning from active service and DOD, as well as our work addressing the issue during our podcast, Service Before Self Episode 006: A Talent Management System for Veterans with Matthew P. Donovan.
