The single-most impactful thing you can do to boost your military hiring efforts in 2015 is not a new technology or tool, not a pay-per-click service, or specialized candidate database. This strategy is budget friendly and team-focused.
The answer: search for and identify one person in your organization that is off-the-charts passionate about military and veteran-related issues. Then inspire, influence and persuade them to be your new project lead.
A heartfelt initiative like military and veteran hiring must blend some key components, including inspiring others into action, sharing best practices, and working as a team across departments. Whether you have a small crew of recruiters or a large department of specialists, think beyond “recruiting and talent acquisition” to have a successful veteran program.
