Transforming Military and Veteran Recruiting Programs


The Whalls Group is a member of Sanford Rose Associates® (SRA) network of offices, a global executive and professional “Top Ten Search Firm” that has served the recruiting needs of business and industry since 1959.


To transform your military and veteran recruiting program you need a partner.  Having been an integral partner in military and corporate recruiting spanning three decades, our team at Whalls Group offers a dynamic consulting practice that is second to none. For strategy consulting to companies that want to improve their focus on military and veteran recruiting, it’s critical to start with a partner who understands the experience, skill-sets and expertise of separating service members and veterans.



Mark R. Whalls has designed and spearheaded the very successful veteran recruiting programs for both JPMorgan Chase (100,000 Jobs Mission) and Aetna Inc. He then developed innovative retention programs to ensure that veterans are motivated to stay with those companies as their careers progress and thrive. The Whalls Group partners with companies and assists them in achieving and maintaining OFCCP compliance by navigating the relationship between military veterans and employers, thereby increasing the potential for new hires and decreasing the probability of attrition.


Whether your company is working to establish a new veteran recruiting program or needs to boost the efficiency of an existing one, we have developed a strategic, high-touch, high value “Talent Advocacy” framework that gets results. We are committed to providing our clients with a comprehensive program of professional consulting services, and work with a progressive line-up of educational formats, including individual coaching and mentoring, on-site seminars, forums at your or our location and web-based training.
