Abstract:

This document reports the results of a study entitled Employer Partnership Initiative Analysis of Alternatives. The purpose of this study was to examine opportunities for the U.S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard to strengthen their relationships with employers and citizen soldiers through the Employer Partnership Program. In this document we describe the Army reserve components experience with the program through September 2010 and recommend improvements, based on interviews with program stakeholders, analysis of data collected from the Employer Partnership Program s job search website, and case studies of job opportunities for soldiers in Army Reserve units located in four metropolitan areas across the United States. Since the Employer Partnership Program launched a new version of its job search website in November 2010, some of our analysis is no longer directly applicable to the program. However, these findings should be of interest to reserve component policymakers and staff concerned with recruiting, retention, and training of reserve component service members and with maintaining strong relationships with civilian employers and can help inform efforts in the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Labor to assist veterans seeking civilian employment.
