Today the U.S. Veteran and Military workforce are more skilled, educated, and diverse than ever before. In an increasingly competitive job market, how do companies create an inclusive workplace culture that not only attracts, but also retains the valuable skills and experience veterans bring?

Join us for the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Workforce Summit, as we unpack best practices for attracting top military talent, optimizing your hiring process, and establishing employment initiatives that encourage long-term retention.

Sharing their collective knowledge, our industry experts will provide key insights on marketing your job opportunities to veterans, and effective recruitment strategies that will make your workplace a preferred destination for military talent.
