The SHRM Conference will be held at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, IL, June 16-19, 2013, and HR Plus will exhibit at booth #3242. 

"Many employers and veterans are not aware of the variety of non-profit organizations including the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve that strive to match veterans with companies seeking to fill positions," says Bill Tate, President, HR Plus. "Employers nationwide should become true partners with these organizations to ensure that their company is maximizing its ability to recruit from this extremely qualified talent pool and supporting those who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom. These groups are dedicated to putting our nation's military personnel to work, and can help employers and veterans alike."

HR Plus is proud to present a SHRM educational session titled, "Share It Forward: Best Practices for Hiring Military" on June 19, 2013, at from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the McCormick Place Convention Center. This session is presented by Jerold Ramos, CABR, CRM, Director of Strategic Acquisition/Military Liaison, AlliedBarton Security Services and Daniel Lessard, Director, Warriors to Work Program, Wounded Warriors Project.

"Our session will discuss how human resource leaders can best partner with military assistance groups to attract quality military candidates, improve their workforce and differentiate their business," said Ramos. "If your company's recruiting strategy doesn't include military veterans and reservists, you're missing an opportunity to work with our country's most outstanding individuals. We will discuss how you can work with military service members, develop recruiting strategies, create partnerships with military support organizations and hire veterans, reservists, their families and caregivers."
