Hiring Veterans: How To Leverage Military Talent for Organizational Growth by Matthew J. Louis is a unique book that addresses a specific need for employers. The transition from military to civilian life can be challenging for many servicemen, but that doesn't mean that they do not have a place in non-military organizations and companies. This book makes a strong case for taking advantage of men and women who have worn uniforms to boost productivity and get even better results. Specifically written for employers taking a chance at hiring veterans fresh out from their military experience, this book provides a blueprint for identifying the right talent, prepping candidates to deliver quality and exceptional service, and building a culture that is inclusive.

Matthew J. Louis is a retired Lieutenant Colonel who brings a lot of wisdom and practical knowledge into the writing and he writes with the authority of a well-informed professional. His ability to identify and communicate the skillsets of former military candidates is unique and he does so in a voice that is both confident and compassionate. This book provides a guide to understanding the veteran and military culture and the governing regulations, organizing and staffing a veteran support program, setting expectations, onboarding and training veteran hires, and measuring their success. Veterans come in with skills that are already strengthened and enhanced by military service — professionalism, work ethic and discipline, leadership and management skills, mental toughness, adaptation to different challenges, etc. — and many companies look for this set of skills to build the talent that drives success and set them above their competition. Hiring Veterans: How To Leverage Military Talent for Organizational Growth is a guidebook that employers who are open to hiring ex-servicemen require. It is written in accessible, clear, and beautiful prose, littered with diagrams that make understanding even easier and steps that are easy to follow. It is a valuable tool for hiring the best talent from the military community.
