Abstract : RAND hosted two workshops, in May and October 2015, that brought together key stakeholders, including representatives from federal agencies, private-sector companies, and research organizations, to collaborate and share ideas to improve veterans employment opportunities. Through these workshops, we sought to explore solutions to key challenges to veteran employment identified in previous RAND research, Veteran Employment: Lessons from the 100,000 Jobs Mission (www.rand.org/t/RR836). Another goal of the workshops was to build on the existing knowledge base and identify remaining research gaps. The discussions outlined the future research agenda to best support the efficacy of efforts to hire and support veterans in the civilian workforce.
