The Department of Veterans Affairs has released an online Veterans Employment Toolkit aimed at helping employers, managers and supervisors, human resource professionals, and employee assistance program providers support employees who are Veterans or members of the Reserve or National Guard to increase Veterans' retention of employment and facilitate their success in the workplace. The online toolkit provides information about the value Veterans bring to the workplace, material describing the military experience and culture, common challenges Veterans may experience in readjusting to civilian life, and how to support individuals in that transition.
The toolkit also addresses how to offer help to Veterans with disabilities including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The Veterans Employment Toolkit also includes resources for Veterans who want to obtain employment, learn how to make important career decisions, and excel in the workplace.
