ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Managed Staffing has developed a specialized Corporate Social Responsibility programs, including our Unique Veterans Workforce programs where we team up with local and National Veterans Outreach Programs working with State and Federal agencies to Source, Train and Transition current military personnel and veterans back into the workforce.
Background
Veterans in the United States are the most under-served community in workforce development. While the focus of many Veteran Agencies at the federal, state and local level has been to provide good medical care and benefits, the process of assimilating them into the civilian workforce as self-sufficient, working professionals has been largely lacking.
Highlights from the BLS 2017 data:

  • The unemployment rate for male veterans (3.6 percent) declined over the year, and the rate for female veterans (4.1 percent) changed little in 2017. The unemployment rate for male veterans was not statistically different from the rate for female veterans.
  • Among the 370,000 unemployed veterans in 2017, 59 percent were age 25 to 54, 37 percent were age 55 and over, and 4 percent were age 18 to 24.
  • Veterans with a service-connected disability had an unemployment rate of 4.3 percent in August 2017, little different from veterans with no disability (4.5 percent).
  • About 1 in 3 employed veterans with a service-connected disability worked in the public sector in August 2017, compared with about 1 in 5 veterans with no disability.
  • In 2017, the unemployment rate of veterans varied across the country, ranging from 1.7 percent in Maine and Vermont to 7.3 percent in Rhode Island.

Among the problems cited by Veterans’ groups is that the skills a service member acquires in the military do not always transfer to the civilian world. What’s missing, they said, is often a system of certification that tells an employer that the veteran has the skills and knowledge to meet the job requirements. The absence of training opportunities continues to hamper the veterans in transitioning smoothly to the civilian workforce.
