Organizations that hire veterans have an unquestionable edge in the market place. Here’s how to do it right.

Veterans are a tremendous source of untapped talent and come with a wealth of skills and experience beyond those of typical civilian employees. Field Tested gives readers the insight and tools they need to recruit and retain veterans, and to maximize their value in any organization.

A must-read for leaders, managers, and human resources professionals across industries, Field Tested uncovers key cultural differences between the military and civilian workplace, and reveals how these differences can affect employee performance, satisfaction, and retention. Complete with real-world examples, practical models, and savvy advice, this book shows readers how to:

• Attract and interview veterans

• On-board them quickly and effectively

• Position them for success

• Ensure a smooth cultural transition

• Manage performance

• Help them develop lasting careers.

Smart companies that hire veterans owe it to themselves and their employees to under stand the unique considerations involved. This one-of-a-kind guide reveals how to make the most of America’s top talent.
