There are roughly 19 million U.S. military veterans—a bit under 10% of the country’s adults, according to Pew Research.  This is a significant population of potential employees, especially since hiring service members and military families has a proven impact on business outcomes. For example, ADP’s Inclusion Summit found veterans offer a unique combination of “teamwork, leadership, grit, resilience, empathy and the ability to problem-solve in the most demanding circumstances”—qualities that translate to performance. In fact, the Kellogg School found CEOs who are veterans perform better under pressure and are less likely to make risky investments or engage in corporate fraud.

 As employers, understanding the unique skills and needs of this employee segment can help differentiate and define your value as an organization, in turn helping you attract and retain high-performing veteran talent. With this perspective in mind, let’s walk through four tactical steps that can help you harness your workplace benefits to better serve those who serve.
