Every CEO in the United States is being challenged to post their Veterans’ Initiatives on their corporate websites.  Thayer Leadership at West Point is leading the way with our own statement (read it here) and corresponding set of initiatives.

  • Attracting Veterans
  • Recruiting Veterans
  • Hiring Veterans
  • Training Veterans
  • Retaining Veterans
  • Veterans networking within your company
  • Supporting National Guard and Reserve employees and their families
