Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Are you an employer looking to tap into the potential of Arizona’s veteran workforce?

If so, join the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 26 at the HonorHealth Military Partnership event being held at 7301 E. 4th St. as chamber officials say an opportunity to network, gain valuable insights, and boost Arizona’s workforce awaits.

“We’re excited to bring employers this opportunity to unlock the potential of skilled veteran hiring,” said Michelle Pabis, Scottsdale chamber board chair. “By leveraging the SkillBridge Program, employers can benefit from access to highly skilled personnel, while also supporting veterans as they transition into the civilian workforce.”

The SkillBridge Program is committed to helping employers leverage the potential veteran employees bring to the table. Thousands of active-duty service members are stationed across Arizona, carrying with them valuable skills and experience.

This initiative of the Department of Defense, in association with the Arizona Coalition for Military Families allows service members within six months of separation to intern, apprentice, or certify with approved civilian employers while still receiving full military pay and benefits, according to a press release.

The Arizona Coalition of Military Families provides a dedicated coordinator and a memorandum of understanding between active-duty military installations and state entities.

“We’re thrilled to introduce the ‘Veteran Hiring Success’ event, showcasing our commitment to empowering veterans and businesses alike.” said Erika Acorn, Scottsdale chamber membership director and staff liaison to the VMAC Committee. “This initiative embodies our dedication to creating impactful connections that enrich both our workforce and community.”

Attendees will also have an opportunity to network with fellow employers and get answers to any questions they may have regarding recruiting and hiring veterans.
