Why hire veterans?

Join Automation Alley’s Education and Workforce Committee as they kick off Season 2 of the “Michigan’s Got Talent” event series with a panel discussion focused on hiring veterans. “Veterans: The Untapped Talent Pool” will educate the business community on the value of hiring veterans, government sponsored incentive programs and how to create a veteran hiring initiative within their companies.
