BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New England College of Business and Finance (NECB), recently named by the U.S. Department of Education as the most affordable private college in New England and the leading institution of online education designed for working adults seeking career advancement, today announced it is hosting a free webinar about the benefits associated with hiring veterans. Mike Betz, General Manager of the Military Student Center at Education Corporation of America, will lead “Employer Benefits of Hiring Veterans – The Right Thing to Do and Beyond,” on Tuesday, August 27, at 1 p.m. ET.
“Employers have a responsibility to respect those who have fought to protect our freedom”
During the one-hour webinar, participants will learn about the opportunities for employers to tap into a desirable market of veterans and the educational benefits available for current veteran employees. They will discuss research that builds a business case for hiring veterans, how to access free resources to support employer outreach to a growing pool of veterans and how to access employer tax credits.
“Several hundred thousand trained service members will separate from the military in the coming years, many of whom will be looking for employment in the civilian sector,” said Mike Betz. “This webinar is one way we are educating employers on the opportunities they have to give back to those who have served our country.”
Mike Betz has 30 years of experience in business and postsecondary education with veteran benefits. Last year, the Military Student Center fielded over 25,000 calls from military affiliated families with questions about military benefits.
“Employers have a responsibility to respect those who have fought to protect our freedom,” said Dennis Madigan, Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at NECB. “This webinar is a way for NECB to educate U.S. employers about the opportunities they have to hire these qualified candidates.”
