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.
