Disney Putting on Veteran-hiring Workshop in Florida

by Sep 11, 2013, 2:13 pm ET

HeroesWorkHereDisney says it hopes a November 14 event inspires private-sector companies to hire people finishing up their military stints.

The event is free, and is geared toward small- and mid-sized companies who want to build veteran-hiring programs. Speakers will include government officials from the U.S. Labor and Defense Departments, veterans, Disneyites, and non-profit veterans service organizations.

Disney set a March 2012 goal of hiring 1,000 veterans by 2015; it says that it beat that goal already and is aiming for another 1,000 more. (More on its veteran recruiting here.)

    I say: “Good going, Disney!” They’re making a commitment to hire- not to counsel or advise or train or guide but to HIRE.
    Let’s hope a few hundred other large firms and thousands of smaller ones do likewise, and with meaningful numbers, too.

    Hey, Employers of Choice:
    How many of our honored servicemen and women are YOU committed to hiring?

    Cheers,
    Keith
