Veterans bring unique perspectives and skill sets to the workforce that are invaluable for any company: leadership, problem-solving, communication expertise, and more. SAVI is committed to helping organizations and employers from all sectors (nonprofit, public, and private) to better understand the common challenges service-members face as they transition to post-military jobs. After years of service, this adjustment can be challenging for many Veterans, often leading to crossed wires with their colleagues and untapped potential for greater business results.
When partnering with SAVI, companies offering jobs for Veterans receive a comprehensive assessment on how well they’re doing to create a transition-friendly environment, followed by SAVI’s full-service support in rolling out improvement strategies. Included in this consulting program are customized workshops to build or strengthen your strategies for recruiting, onboarding, retaining, and leveraging the skills of Veteran employees.

SAVI loves our own work supporting service-members during their transition into civilian life. But what we love just as much is the chance to partner with other Veteran-run and Veteran-founded nonprofit organizations to help them thrive. Leaders at these organizations know more than anyone else the challenges that come with the transition from service-member to civilian. The SAVI team wants to make sure that you never lose your drive to uplift fellow Veterans, especially in the toughest early stages of the process.
We’re here to help Veteran leaders power through the business and strategic aspects of building a solid base for their nonprofit organization. This includes planning to hire Veterans for post-military jobs, developing your board, and creating internal processes for mission auditing and fundraising. Each of these aspects is essential to running a successful nonprofit, and SAVI’s own founding team and extensive network of nonprofit leaders can provide you with any practical advice you may need.
