November Member Meeting: Celebrate Veterans! Recruitment and Retention Strategies 

November 10, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am CST


Veterans are disciplined team players that can bolster any employer’s business. What’s more, hiring veterans is not only a good idea, it’s good business. EIHRA hosts an hour long presentation with experts who can assist you with Recruiting and Retaining Veterans.  Learn about Home Base Iowa, which partners Veterans with employers, educators, and communities to make working and living in Iowa both welcoming and gratifying.  Also hear how you can work with the the Dept of Labor and the Dept of Veterans Affairs to ensure registered apprentices who are Veterans can receive their GI Bill benefits. You’ll also gain a better understanding of USERRA, the federal statute that protects servicemembers’ and veterans’ civilian employment rights. You’ll also hear from a representative from ESGR which fosters a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. Finally, we celebrate the role businesses play in providing the continued promise of meaningful civilian employment for citizen soldiers and Veterans who defend and protect us at home and abroad.
