The Veteran Advantage:
Hiring and Retaining Veterans with Disabilities

More and more employers are stepping up to hire veterans with disabilities. The nearly 4 million veterans with a service-connected disability are among the most resilient members of society, having served in the military and overcome adversity. They are loyal, team-oriented employees with job-ready skills, tested leadership abilities and a strong, mission-focused work ethic. This guide will help you navigate the often-unclear terrain of recruiting, hiring and retaining veterans with disabilities.

Based on proven, best practices for hiring and retaining veterans, this guide is a map to empowering your organization to become a thought leader in the veteran employment  space, while making it easier to do the right thing for the country and your company.
