Deloitte Program Bridges Gap from Barracks to Boardroom
America's business community has instituted many wonderful programs to help veterans transition from the military to the corporate world, Deloitte officials say, and this year they're proud to add their own innovative program, designed to help service members bridge the gap from the armed forces to corporate America.In November, Deloitte unveiled its Career Opportunity Redefinition & Exploration (CORE) Leadership Program, which provides individual, "high-touch" support to current and former armed forces members who are looking to translate their military skills to the corporate playing field. More than fifty current and former service men and women attended the inaugural, three-day CORE session, held at Deloitte University in Westlake, Texas, to learn how to adapt their military skills and experiences to the business realm. The CORE Leadership Program is part of Deloitte's commitment to the White House's Joining Forces initiative, which calls on businesses to provide service members and their families with opportunities and support. As part of this initiative, last spring, Deloitte announced its commitment to set a goal of doubling its veteran hires over the next three years.
