Today is Veterans Day, a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by those who have served in the armed forces to protect the freedoms so precious to us. As a country, we must do all we can to support returning veterans’ efforts to find challenging and rewarding employment. It’s a fight that needs fighting: 188,000 veterans that served after 9/11 are currently unemployed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The good news is that technology and data can be used to help address this problem—an effort that we at Workday are passionate about.
On Friday I posted on the Workday Blog about a meeting at the White House about opening up data to address U.S. Veterans’ unemployment.

Last month I joined leaders from both the public and private sectors in a discussion at the White House. We met in a room as stately and mahogany-adorned as you might envision, with the talk focused on a common goal: using open data to connect job seekers with employers. Closing the gap between skills employers need and locating people with those skills is key to building a more efficient labor market. It’s especially important to one swath of the workforce that we in the U.S. owe our gratitude, which is returning military veterans.
