Hiring Our Heroes—giving military vets a new opportunity
Part of the On Cloud Podcast series
For some, transitioning from the military to the private sector can be challenging. Deloitte is participating in the Hiring Our Heroes initiative to help ease that transition. For three Deloitte employees, the experience has been invaluable.
Hiring our Heroes—easing the transition from military to the private sector
Military personnel serve our country in countless ways, but sometimes the transition to private life can be difficult. To help ease that transition, Deloitte participates in Hiring Our Heroes—a collaboration with American businesses to create job opportunities for veterans post-service. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with three veterans who are participating in the program with Deloitte to find out how they’re faring during their transition and what lessons they’ve learned.
The biggest help that I've received thus far has been just setting up a rigorous training program to kind of get the certifications and technical knowledge.
Harshal Gujarathi, Evan Ray, and Zosia Bober are all United States Military veterans who are participating in a corporate fellowship with Deloitte via Hiring Our Heroes, a non-profit entity that works with American businesses to provide job opportunities for personnel in their post-military careers.
Cloud implementations often stall, not because of technology, but because of people and processes–i.e., culture. To achieve better outcomes, build a better culture.
Increasingly, companies are realizing that their cloud migration journey is defined as much by their culture as by their technology choices. Effectively managing that culture is key to enabling a successful cloud adoption.
