Military and Veteran Hiring: Strategies for Success from Corporate Gray

Topics: military hiring

Posted by Lori Vrcan on Jul 13, 2017 9:00:00 AM


In previous articles, we gleaned strategies from USAA and United Rentals, who have highly successful and award-winning programs. This follow-up blog features Carl Savino, President of Corporate Gray, an organization that helps connect transitioning military to employers.

“I think companies are well served to take a hard look at the men and women who are separating from the military and seeking civilian employment.  Their skills and experience can benefit a wide range of companies well beyond the defense sector,” says Carl Savino, President of Corporate Gray. “Military success is built on confidence, humility, integrity and a willingness to do whatever it takes to accomplish the mission.”

In 1994, Savino founded Corporate Gray to help transitioning service members make a successful transition to the civilian work-world. His organization helps connect transitioning service members with employers in three primary ways: the Corporate Gray Job Fairs, Corporate Gray Online, and Corporate Gray book, now titled The Military-to-Civilian Transition Guide. Over the last 20 years, over four million copies of the book were given to separating and retiring active duty service members across the country and even overseas.

The state of health care recruiting: a chat with Gretchen Adams from Reading Health System

Topics: health care recruiting

Posted by NAS on Jul 6, 2017 9:00:00 AM


As the 2017 NAHCR Image conference in Savannah approaches, NAS reached out to various health care thought leaders to create an e-book with their ideas and recommendations. Gretchen Adams, Director of Talent Acquisition at Reading Health System, provided such a detailed and insightful response that we felt it warranted a blog post all its own.

What do you feel is vital to recruiting health care professionals today?

First and foremost, we are focused on getting the attention of health care professionals. What are we able to offer them that they can’t get from their current employer? Of course, it’s different for each candidate, so we need to be in front of them to establish that relationship and to be able to understand their needs. Once we have their interest, it is important to move fast and to make them feel like they are the most important person to us throughout the recruiting, onboarding and orientation process.

In honor of the NAHCR 2017 IMAGE Conference, NAS has put together a free e-book of insights, tips and advice from our own colleagues and associates who are thought leaders in the health care space. We asked them to share their expertise regarding this year’s conference theme: 

“Honoring the Past, Treasuring the Present,
Shaping the Future of Health Care Recruitment.”

It’s a great way to learn what your peers consider important, how they are reaching their goals today and what they plan on implementing as recruitment continues to evolve in the coming years.


Meet us in Booth #205 at NAHCR!

If you do plan to attend the 2017 NAHCR Image conference in Savannah from July 11-14, plan to visit with NAS in Booth #205 during exhibit hours. Jennifer Henley, Vice President of Client Services and Matt Adam, EVP and Chief Talent Strategist, will be on hand to talk recruitment. We’ll also have a drawing for a $100 MasterCard gift certificate. See you there!

When it comes to campus recruiting, one of the most knowledgeable professionals in the field is Joshua Tunison, National Sales Manager at College Recruiter. College Recruiter is the leading job search site used by students and recent graduates. We had a recent talk with Tunison, who was kind enough to share his knowledge and insight on campus recruiting.

Are you seeing any emerging trends for campus recruiting this fall?

  • Most organizations have a need for applied tech skills but many recruiters have a poor understanding of what they really are and how to identify them. A candidate who is able to integrate people, processes, data and devices has applied tech skills.
  • Organizations continue to compete for candidates with soft skills (communication, problem solving, analytical skills, critical thinking), which can be the difference between a short-term and long-term employee.
  • In addition to skills-based hiring, recruiters will be looking closely for cultural fit within their organization, recognizing that they may have to invest in more skills training to get new employees up to speed.
  • Finally, employers who have a mobile-friendly job application process will see an increase in applications.
