Is your hiring off base?
With the skilled labour shortages forecast, successful companies can't afford to overlook any labour pools – especially one with the training and experience of transitioning Canadian Forces members. The military has roughly 5000 transitioning members every year. BaseToBusiness has the connections to help make your recruiting easier and hiring process more cost effective.
Become a BaseToBusiness employer and we'll send you e-bulletins with the latest news and a VETYOURNEXTHIRE.COM sticker for your company vehicle or office window. It shows you're a supporter of what Canadian Armed Forces veterans have to offer employers.

BaseToBusiness holds Effective Strategy Forums for employers who wish to be part of a growing network of organizations that learn,
share and reinforce leading hiring practices.
Held every quarter, Effective Strategy Forums can take the form of roundtable discussions or seminars with guest speakers.
Topics may include the military to civilian transition experience, mentorship and peer support, salary equivalencies and operational stress injuries.

Follow us on Twitter and keep up with the latest ways to connect to the skilled women and men who are transitioning from the Canadian Forces.
At BaseToBusiness, we believe the right person for the job is the right person for the job. This can include transitioning members of the Forces who have a physical disability or a condition such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In collaboration with another Prospect program, Forces@WORK, we place veterans who have the skills required for a job, but who need supports to perform to their greatest potential. Check out the Forces@WORK website here.
Many companies go from 'vet your next hire' to 'hire your next vet' in a very short time, once they experience the advantages of hiring a transitioning member or veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces. Post your job ad here and see.
