About This Course:
President Donald Trump just signed the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (the HIRE Vets Act) into law. As a result, the Department of Labor has launched the HIRE Vets Medallion Program to recognize employers that recruit, employ, and retain veterans.

Through the DOL’s program, large employers will be eligible for two awards, the Gold HIRE Vets Medallion and the Platinum HIRE Vets Medallion Award, and it will also establish similar awards for small-to-mid-size businesses.

Given that the U.S. Armed Forces is the best in the world, comprised of many capable men and woman who are seeking to re-enter the civilian workforce following their years of service with the passage of the HIRE Vets Act, it’s clear that now is the time to consider whether you’ve got a successful way of reaching would-be recruits who may have been off the prospective employment grid but who could be tremendously valuable assets to your organization.

Let us show you how one organization has nailed its efforts to recruit and retain veterans. Join us when Lori Calderon, director of talent acquisition at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, will show you how to design a highly successful approach for recruiting and hiring veterans.

  • The phases of creating a successful initiative to recruit veterans, including what specifically should happen during the critical first and second phases
  • How to determine the program’s purpose and intent
  • 4 key steps to developing a program that succeeds at helping military service members transition to their civilian careers within your organization

About Your Presenter:

Lori Calderon
Director of Talent Acquisition
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Lori Calderon serves as director of talent acquisition at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, where she oversees the employment of extraordinary individuals to provide exceptional service at the 3,005-room resort located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Ms. Calderon has played an integral part in elevating the employee brand at the resort through general recruitment as well as organizing various veteran initiatives, making it a strong competitor in the employer-brand arena.

Prior to joining The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in June 2015, Ms. Calderon worked in many facets of the recruitment industry, not only along the highly competitive Las Vegas Strip, but also as regional manager for states that are industry forerunners such as Hawaii, California, and Washington. She fulfilled roles such as corporate director of talent acquisition for MGM Resorts International and regional director of recruitment for Wyndham Worldwide.

In her current role, Ms. Calderon and her team has significantly heightened the resort by making it Nevada’s first to partner with The U.S. Army’s Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program, a recruiting and job placement initiative. Additionally, she and her team assisted in making the resort the first employer to coordinate an event that invited competitors to pull together to better serve the community with the Supporting Our Veterans Career Fair. From these initiatives, companies have recognized the resort as a veteran employer of choice. Among other achievements garnered through Ms. Calderon’s leadership, the resort is a proven Green Zone employer and a proud winner of the Seven Seals Award, the most inclusive acknowledgement given by the Employer Support of The Guard and Reserve (ESGR). More independently, Ms. Calderon’s luminous achievements in the veteran employment spectrum granted her a Patriot Award from the ESGR, which reflects efforts made to support citizen warriors through a wide range of measures.
