Veterans represent a uniquely qualified pool of job candidates, but how does one accommodate the needs of wounded warriors? How do you translate a veteran’s military experience into your available positions in a civilian workforce?
Find out the answers to these questions and more by attending the second meeting in CTBLN’s Accommodations Series, Strategies for Accommodating Veterans on Friday, September 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Eversource (formerly Northeast Utilities), 107 Selden Street, Berlin, CT.
Admission is $10.00 for members and $15.00 for those who have not yet joined CTBLN. RSVP now by sending an email to Sharon Denson at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 860-561-1232.
A panel of representatives from a veteran’s organization, the military and experts on the conditions most commonly acquired by wounded warriors will speak about workplace accommodations for veterans and strategies for successfully recruiting, hiring and retaining veterans in your workplace.
Companies believe that hiring veterans is the “right thing to do” and federal contractors are required to hire a certain percentage of veterans and individuals with disabilities (including wounded warriors). If you are a Section 503 or VEVRAA company, this meeting fulfills your outreach requirements and we will give you a proof of your attendance to include in your report to OFCCP.
