Employers. Companies. Organizations.
The other side of the mission is to work with all sizes of companies and organizations in Canada looking for talented employees with leadership skills, work ethic and loyalty.
Project FootHold aims to be a principal partner with companies and HR leaders in attracting, hiring, retaining, and maximizing the potential of transitioning veterans.
Corporate Canada and the business community has a unique opportunity to unlock the potential of veterans and other post-military personnel who are transitioning to civilian life. Companies large and small realize that a more comprehensive inclusion and development programs are absolutely imperative to attracting and retaining the most highly talented employees and that includes veterans.
According to a recent study by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, veterans change jobs twice on average before settling into post-military careers. This turnover is extremely expensive both in hiring costs and lost innovation potential.
We help companies transition from an opportunity-based veteran hiring approach to a targeted, end-to-end strategy that adds significant value to your company and organization.
Participate in our Veteran Career Development Programs
We offer companies the opportunity to participate in a meaningful, results-oriented career development and transition program that has a significant impact on the lives of transitioning veterans and their families.
We are seeking strategic partners that want to participate in delivering a substantive program to the local veteran community. In return, those corporations that embrace a strategic relationship with Project FootHold will benefit from a consistent pipeline of veteran talent as well as opportunities for employees and executives to engage with members of the local community in a meaningful way. Specifically, employers can participate in three ways:
- Sponsor a Career Readiness Program in a mutually agreed upon city
- Host a class or networking event at your corporate offices in one or multiple locations
- Become a veteran hiring partner
- Sponsor the program as part of your Corporate Social Responsibility program and invest in your company’s long term sustainability.
