The Manufacturing Institute will hold a virtual roundtable discussion on recruiting and retaining talent from among military veterans.
The program is May 14 at noon Eastern time.
The roundtable, Recruiting and Retaining Talent from the Military Veteran Community, focuses on best practices that can be adapted and implemented by companies and the key steps leading manufacturers are taking to engage, hire, and support veterans. MI will unveil a virtual toolkit for manufacturers that contains examples highlighted during the event as well as other best practices.
The discussion is part of MI’s Heroes MAKE America initiative and features voices at the forefront of the ongoing work in manufacturing, offering case study examples and industry-specific guidance. The roundtable is targeted to manufacturing leaders interested in starting, sustaining, or expanding diversity and inclusion efforts.
The National Fluid Power Association, a partner in the Heroes MAKE America initiative, continues to open the doors for NFPA members to the program’s graduates, all of whom have received training for production-floor jobs in manufacturing and are looking to work in designated communities around the country. NFPA members have access to these candidates because of NFPA’s financial support of the Heroes MAKE America program.
In addition to having resume access to transitioning servicemen and women, NFPA members can join roundtable discussions on best practices for veteran recruitment strategies. NFPA encourages members to attend the May 14 roundtable.
NFPA members with questions can contact Amy Zignego at firstname.lastname@example.org.
