Cable and Telecommunications Human Resources Association
Neil Smit to Provide Keynote Address for Hiring Heroes Session at Symposium

altThis year, nearly 250,000 veterans will leave the service and return to civilian life. The skills they fine-tuned in the military make them highly valuable in the eyes of industry employers. Many companies have strategic goals that include a renewed focus on helping veterans enter the civilian workforce, and Comcast NBCUniversal is one of the companies leading the charge. It’s a subject that has special meaning for former Navy Seal Neil Smit, President and CEO of Comcast Cable. At CTHRA’s Future Forward Symposium, Neil will detail Comcast NBCUniversal’s bold plan to hire 10,000 reservists, veterans and their spouses or domestic partners between 2015 and 2017. Neil will also share insight into how business leaders can best support service members as they make the transition from military life into careers within our industry. Immediately following Neil’s keynote address, a panel of experts will discuss best practices in veteran hiring, how to make veterans aware of the myriad career opportunities across our industry, and successful strategies to retain them as long-term employees. The featured panelists are Will Baas, VP of Talent Acquisition at Comcast-NBCUniversal; Jeff Gibson, VP of National COE Operations, Comcast University; and Stacy Green, SVP of HR for A+E Networks.
