Many human resource professionals say they do not know all they need to effectively locate and hire military veterans. The Society for Human Resource Management has published a tool kit to help them. The tool kit, Support From Behind the Lines: 10 Steps to Becoming a Military-Ready Employer, offers advice on how to source, assimilate, and support military veterans in the workplace. Among the steps companies can take to improve their military-veteran hiring practices are to understand the issues and challenges facing this population and to build a business case for hiring them.
