Creating Caregiver-Friendly Enviroments
Creating Jobs for Military and Veteran Caregivers
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its Foundation have made a significant commitment to military caregivers. The organization’s successful Hiring Our Heroes program will leverage its experience to assist caregivers as they search for meaningful employment opportunities. Not only will Hiring Our Heroes introduce caregivers to a myriad of virtual tools, it will expand its current job fair program to focus on caregivers in areas near military treatment facilities. Recognizing that many military caregivers have limited flexibility, Hiring Our Heroes will also incorporate caregivers into an innovative virtual job fair program that it is unveiling that will help caregivers find meaningful employment. Additionally, the Chamber will host a major summit for the business community in partnership with the Elizabeth Dole Foundation in September 2014 to promote employment and workforce friendly environments for military caregivers.
