What we aim to solve

66% of all Post 9/11 veterans that have transitioned out of the service, leave their first place of employment within the first year of being with the company. This statistic is representative of the stigmatization that all veterans face as they leave the service and attempt to gain lucrative employment post military service. Project RELO was founded to educate corporate America on the value of hiring veterans and doing so because it is more than a social good, it is good for business. By engaging the top 1% of business executives, Project RELO can effectively educate these business leaders on the true leadership capabilities of the 1% of Americans brave enough to serve our great nation.
Of the 33,495 not for profit organizations that are dedicated to veteran services, Project RELO is the only one that educates corporate leaders from the top down, rather than transactional organizations that focus on the bottom up approach.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Project RELO solves this problem by providing the superlative training that companies need to be able to hire quality veteran talent. Through the leadership training the companies top executives receive, the corporate buy in and approval is a given. 97% of corporate executives who participate in Project RELO missions, say that the leadership missions have changed their perspective on veteran hiring, and influenced them to hire more veterans.
When the executives return home from the Project RELO leadership missions, they bring the training they received back to their companies and induce change at the executive level. Through these key stakeholders, change is directed to the human resources departments to begin hiring more veterans. But Project RELO does not stop at the leadership missions. Project RELO extends its outreach to each company to come in and train their talent and human resource teams on how to find the right veteran talent for the positions they want to fill.

Project RELO has just concluded its final leadership mission for calendar year 2017 and is already filling seats for the 2018 campaign. Through fundraising and marketing Project RELO will aim to increase the leadership mission attendance. This will be done by hosting an additional four executives on each of the five leadership missions planned for 2018. The leadership missions in 2018 are currently planned as follows:
• May 16-19
• June 20-23
• August 22-25
• September 19-22
• October 17-20
Prior to 2018, Project RELO only had the capabilities to host 8-10 corporate executives, 3-4 transitioning service members (one from each service), and four crew members. In 2018, Project RELO will be able to increase that number to 12-15 corporate executives, while maintaining the numbers of veterans and crew.

Through steady growth over the last two years, Project RELO has increased the level of its board of directors, and brought on its first full time, paid employee. Through this growth, the outreach and the touches that Project RELO is able to accomplish is done so on a daily basis. Through constant communication and collaboration with the companies that we have worked with, mission attendance has increased over 20% in the last 12 months. This trend will help us increase our operational footprint and bring on more employees to be able to expand our footprint further.

Through the customer resource manager platform, Salesforce, Project RELO will capture all activity with corporate executives and veterans that attend any Project RELO function, to include pre and post leadership mission surveys. These metrics will be measured to determine the outreach that Project RELO is making in corporate America. In year one, Project RELO was able to reach 104 companies, in 2017 Project RELO increased that number to 177 unique companies. In 2018, Project RELO is looking to increase that number to 250.

100% of all veterans that attend a Project RELO mission have received a new career within 120 following mission completion.
