Veterans Recruitment for State Employment Strategic Plan to Governor due 90 days after first meeting of Council (submitted May 24, 2011).
Veterans Skills & Education Strategic Plan to Governor due 90 days after first meeting of Council (submitted May 24, 2011).
In October 2010, the Governor established the Governor's Warrior to Worker Council (Executive Order 01.01.2010.21). A subcabinet of the Governor, the Council will promote specific opportunities to employ, educate, and train veterans in Maryland. To establish a coordinated effort that expands employment for veterans, the Council will advise the Governor and the Secretary of Budget and Management. Further, the Council is to oversee implementation of the Warrior to Worker Initiative; the Veterans Recruitment for State Employment Strategic Plan; and the Veterans Skills and Education Strategic Plan. The two strategic plans are to be updated every three years.
The Warrior to Worker Initiative involves all State agencies in enhancing employment opportunities for veterans within State government. Each State agency is to develop its own plan and designate a staff person to implement the Initiative within that agency. In developing its own operational plan, each agency will use the two strategic plans.
The Veterans Recruitment for State Employment Strategic Plan focuses on employing veterans in State government. It will identify what State agencies can do to employ more veterans; market State government employment to armed services personnel and veterans; and educate State agencies on the talent, experience, and dedication of veterans as potential employees. The Plan also is to promote the recruitment and employment of veterans in State government; identify key occupations that match the skills and training of veterans; and compile statistics on the hiring of veterans throughout State government.
The Veterans Skills and Education Strategic Plan will note how to develop and provide counseling, training, and outreach for veterans to more easily transition from military service into Maryland's skilled workforce. It also will detail how to promote apprenticeships, scholarships, and higher education for Maryland's veterans.
