The Business Value of Veterans

(source: CEB Corporate Leadership Council)

1.  Human Capital was the #1 global challenge for CEOs in 2013.

2.  Organizations struggle to find high quality talent

3.  Veterans index higher on performance (+4%) and retention (+3%) than non-veterans.

For a company of 1000 employees with an average revenue of $150k/employee:

- Increasing performance by 4% improves revenue by $6M annually
- Decreasing turnover by 3% saves $1.3M annually

4.  Post-9-11 veterans are an undertapped talent source

- Nearly 150K veterans will leave the service in 2014
- More than 1M will exit in the next five years
- Post 9-11 veteran unemployment is 3.5% higher than US average

5.  Top challenges to hiring vets include:

- Attracting enough high-quality veterans
- Translating military experience
- Transitioning vets into work force
