CEOs on the recruitment of transitioning service members
from Chief Executive
Veteran employment is on the rise, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' 2018 annual Employment Situation of Veterans, which shows the jobless rate for all veterans continued its downward trend from 4.3 percent to 3.8 percent from 2016 to 2018. There is no doubt that a robust U.S. economy with record unemployment levels has helped these numbers. After all, CEOs have consistently told Chief Executive that one of their biggest challenges in 2018 has been a shortage of talent. But the increasing number of veterans joining the workforce is also an encouraging sign that companies are embracing the range of skills, attitudes and behaviors military training can bring to the corporate world.
