As the founder of consulting firm Military Transitions, Emily King applied over a decade’s worth firsthand HR knowledge to pioneer the charge of helping military professionals migrate from military service to civilian employment. Now, in this thought-provoking book, she’s equipping leaders with the tools they need to recruit and retain some of America’s top talent--and understand the unique considerations involved when working with employees from a military background. Field Tested uncovers key cultural differences between the military and civilian workplace and reveals how these differences can affect employee performance, satisfaction, and retention. You’ll discover best practices for interviewing veterans, on-boarding them quickly and effectively, positioning them for success, ensuring a smooth cultural transition, managing performance, and helping them develop lasting careers. With a wealth of unique talents and experiences, veterans add value to your team beyond your typical civilian employee. Complete with real-world examples, practical models, and savvy advice, Field Tested gives readers insight into veterans’ exceptional abilities so you can maximize their benefit in any organization.
