Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Memorial Day Weekend is a time for friends, family and the official kickoff to summer. It is also a time to honor those who have served or currently serve our country. We at Human Capital Advisors are incredibly grateful for those who keep us safe and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. We would like to highlight some of the stories we are paying attention to that impact our veterans, military spouses and our workforce.
Studies Show Moral and Profits Improve by Hiring Veterans

"Data from the study revealed Veterans are 4 percent more productive than their counterparts and 3 percent more likely to stay. When you increase productivity and longevity, you add to the bottom line."

How Veterans are an Asset in the Workplace
"In recent years, there has been an increased focus on providing more job opportunities for veterans transitioning out of the army. Although veterans provide a wealth of talent and possess many of skills and abilities that are needed to close the job skills gap they are often overlooked by employers." Here is an interview to show how veterans are an asset in your workplace.

Conference Set to Level the Playing Field for Military Women
More than a dozen participating companies will pitch to the expected 200 military spouses, veterans and active duty women at the May 17 conference at Sofwerx in Tampa. The companies will talk about their culture, and the benefits and flexibility they offer to workers.

Military women have valuable skills but they are underserved and too often not part of the conversation when it comes to recruiting and hiring, Harb said. She expects the conference to change that.

The Working Military Spouse
The hunt for a steady job can be daunting for military spouses, a quarter of whom are  reportedly unemployed . All military spouses are faced with unpredictability, which often makes them less attractive to employers, but wives–who account for  more than 90% of military spouses –are also subject to the issues that all women contend with in the workplace, from the  gender pay gap  to the  motherhood penalty . Even among military spouses, men are more likely to be gainfully employed

This Air Force Veteran Built the Kind of Company She Wanted to Work For
That ethos, and the workplace Lienert created, has also made IntelliGenesis a magnet for veterans and their families. "Everything we do--the work we go after, the benefits we offer, the events we hold--we try not to deviate from our core values," she says. "We don't want to work with just anyone. We want to leave the world better than we found it."

Dave's Take on the Issue
We thank every veteran who has served in any capacity – after all they are all part of the greatest protective force ever assembled. But we would most like to honor those military men and women who lost their lives in service protecting each of us. Without them we would certainly not be who we are today. THANK YOU!!!

Thank you for your Service!
