Inspire, hire, grow: capitalising on military talent

Wednesday 15 January 2020

Business in the Community Cymru has developed a toolkit to help employers recognise the valuable skills and experiences that veterans can bring to their business and the practical steps they can take to create a more veteran-friendly working environment.

Businesses can follow a straightforward process to develop a strategic, forces-friendly recruitment and retention programme.

This toolkit is intended to raise awareness to prospective employers of the unique and broad range of skills and behaviours that ex-service men and women possess on re-entering civilian life, experience that would be an asset to any company. It provides a simple guide to employing Armed Forces veterans and reservists in Wales.

Five reasons to employ veterans in your business:
  •     Veterans are highly qualified
  •     Veterans have valuable attitudes and are adaptable
  •     Veterans are skilled workers
  •     Veterans make highly effective employees
  •     Employing veterans is good for business and society

The advice in this toolkit is relevant to businesses of all sizes and in any sector. For more information please visit the Business in the Community Cymru website.
