Our Military Spouse (MSEAC) and Veteran Advisory Council’s (VEAC) come together 3 times per year to identify best practices for recruiting and retaining veterans and military spouses. Hiring and retaining top talent can truly be a tough nut to crack, but these individuals are formally committed to leading the way. Join Prudential’s Jim Beamesderfer as he discusses the innovative overseas initiatives Prudential has taken on to tackle military spouse employment issues overseas. Stay tuned as U.S. Army veteran, Frank Stanley and U.S. Marine veteran, Tom Dowd with Cushman & Wakefield go for a deep-dive into their veteran and corporate fellowship programs at Cushman & Wakefield.

“We look at this as a point of collaboration, not competition.” –Jim Beamesderfer, Vice President, Veterans Initiatives at Prudential Financial
“If we can get other companies to do this as well, then we’re hiring more vets, we’re hiring more spouses, and we’re doing more good across this space for a population who really deserves it.” –Jim Beamesderfer, Vice President, Veterans Initiatives, Prudential Financial
“The Corporate Fellowship Program is a fantastic opportunity for us to teach and look at individuals that are transitioning out of the military and take the scariness out of that soldier, sailor or airmen’s transition.”– Frank Stanley, Veteran Recruitment & Program Manager, Cushman & Wakefield
“It makes their transition easier, not just for them, but their entire family.”– Tom Dowd, Veterans Initiative Program Coordinator, Cushman & Wakefield
