    Join us as Phillip Thomas, SHRM Inclusion Captain for the Veterans at Work Certificate, leads the discussion on how the certification can benefit employers and job seekers and the impotanace of hiring our heroes.

    "The SHRM Foundation's new Veterans at Work Certificate Program is now open to all HR professionals. This free, educational program, sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal, is part of the SHRM Foundation's commitment to building more-inclusive workplaces and focuses on best practices for attracting, hiring and retaining veterans.

    The certificate program officially launched Nov. 14 at SHRM's Volunteer Leaders' Summit, which gave inclusion captains—HR professionals trained to lead programming, discussions and activities to inspire and educate professionals in their communities—the first look at the Veterans at Work program. They heard from program partners, such as the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, about the value that skilled veterans bring to the civilian workplace and how to engage and integrate these talented professionals into their organizations. The USAA Foundation sponsored the event."
