Oklahoma Veteran Employer Networkis a collaboration between the Community Service Council (CSC), Oklahoma Veteran Alliance, The City of Tulsa, DR Consulting, Key Personnel and Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs. The network was created to identify and build an employer network of organizations interested in recruiting, hiring and developing veterans in the workplace.
The Oklahoma Veteran Employer Network was launched with a statewide survey at the Governor’s Veteran Symposium in October 2017. CSC and partners developed the scoring rubric and survey process to then carefully identify and recognize Veteran Employer “Champions” from within the network.
Oklahoma Veteran Employer Network offers employers peer-to-peer programming and networking to learn how best to support veterans in their workforce while meeting the needs of their organization. Our network is open to any organization that has an interest and/or desire to employ veterans, and adds value to organizations through the sharing of best practices, tools and resources for building a veteran-ready culture.
