Monster CEO: Why Hiring Our Heroes Is Good Business

I contribute on occasion to Forbes.com on the issues impacting our business and our customers. Tomorrow is Veterans Day – a time to honor the men and women who have dedicated their lives to defending our freedom.

Here at Monster, we value the veterans among us and recognize the unique skill sets and an outstanding work ethic they bring to the workforce. As we draw operations to a close in Iraq and as budgetary pressures on our military increase, more and more service members will be leaving the armed forces and trying to enter the civilian workforce.

Making Meaningful Connections: How To Attract And Engage Veteran Talent

Making Meaningful Connections: How To Attract And Engage Veteran Talent

Here at Monster and Military.com, our ultimate goal is to get veterans to work in meaningful jobs that put their hard-earned skills to work in a civilian setting while giving employers access to a pool of largely untapped and highly valuable talent.

Employers we surveyed overwhelmingly agree that hiring veterans just makes good business sense – nearly all (99%) employers who had hired a veteran felt their work experience was about the same or much better than non-veteran workers. Of that, 69% of employer respondents felt that veteran workers perform their job functions ‘much better’ compared to non-veterans.

The Veterans Talent Index: Tracking the Veteran Talent Gap

One way (among many) we’re helping employers that want to tap into veteran talent is through a new data-driven tool we just unveiled this morning. The Veterans Talent Index is the first of an ongoing series of reports that will highlight both the requirements of today’s employers and the needs of transitioning service members, illuminating the gap that is responsible for the high unemployment rate rampant in today’s veteran population.
