New alliance leverages BMR’s military hiring platform to efficiently connect service members with over 300 Chamber members seeking to add military talent

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, February 18, 2020.  Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce today announced that it is bringing the Bridge My Return military hiring platform to Wisconsin to advance the private sector success of its service members.  Concurrently, employers can leverage the technology platform to identify military talent with greater efficiency and speed.

“This alliance provides holistic and strategic support to the Chamber’s current workforce development efforts by offering a hiring solution built exclusively for the military—an approach that allows all boats to rise,” says Saul Newton, Executive Director of Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce.  “For those companies that need additional support in achieving a higher level of military readiness, BMR has the resources to support our efforts there as well. And, of course, service members who take the time to build a BMR profile—whether they are in Wisconsin, coming back to Wisconsin, or might want to move here—will have the BMR job-matching software working 24/7 for them.”

BMR is free to Veteran jobseekers; employers who are Chamber members are charged platform subscription fees or consulting fees on a preferred provider basis.

“BMR and the Chamber have a shared mission and a clear strategic fit. We’re excited about the energy we can create for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead,” says Bob Hogan, Founder of Bridge My Return.
