Program seeks to get veterans back to work.

ASTD Values Vets

The American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) announces a new partnership with TMG, Inc. to support the ASTD Values Vets Program, powered by TMG's Vet-STRONG family of products and services. The ASTD Values Vets Program will launch at the upcoming ASTD 2014 International Conference & Exposition in Washington, D.C. from May 4-7, 2014. The program’s mission is to provide motivation, education, training, coaching, and recognition for employers desiring to re-capitalize their workforce with veterans by developing and implementing a ”veteran pipeline” to supplement their existing recruiting, hiring, and retention systems.

The partnership brings the strengths of both organizations to bear on the critical need to get veterans working for companies that need their unique skills and talents. ASTD is the world's largest association dedicated to the training and development field and TMG is an expert in the design, development, implementation, and transition of Talent Acquisition and Retention Systems. Over the last two years, TMG has trained more than 775 employers on how to recruit, hire, train, and retain veterans, which directly aligns with and supports ASTD's mission of empowering professionals to develop knowledge and skills successfully. Employers are seeking great talent, and America's veterans are seeking employers who value their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

The ASTD Values Vets team will launch the program with a 30-minute informational session on Wednesday, May 7, and will provide individual employer Vet Ready Assessments during the conference at their booth on the EXPO floor from May 5-7. The TMG, Inc. booth is #138.
