CHICAGO - June 27, 2019 - PRLog -- For the second consecutive year, Exegistics is sponsoring and participating in the Veteran Career Summit to help companies develop, grow, and enhance their veteran workplace initiatives. Additional sponsors this year includes York Solutions and the ICATT Apprenticeship Program.

As a former Marine Corps Officer, continuing the tradition of this event is important to panelist and CEO/Founder of Exegistics Stephen Olds. Olds will present on the Veteran Business Owners' Obligation to the Workforce. "Unfortunately, only 50% of the veteran workforce is actively employed and we need to change that," said Olds.
