This month, the nation recognizes Veterans Day to honor and thank all who served in the U.S. Armed Forces for their service to our country. We celebrate their commitment to duty, our nation and the freedoms we cherish as Americans.

Unfortunately, more than 10 million veterans are currently out of the labor force. Men and women who so bravely served our country shouldn’t have to battle for a job when they come home. I believe HR professionals should lend a hand, any many are.

In this month’s issue of HR Magazine, I highlight the great work of Arkansas SHRM, Philadelphia SHRM and the Cleveland State University SHRM Chapter, but these are only a few examples of positive efforts.  Read more about their efforts here.

I would love to hear from you!  In the comments box below, please share what you or your SHRM chapter are doing to serve those who have so willingly served us.   You can also tweet using the hashtag #wehirevets!
