LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -

Disney is holding a workshop in November to encourage other companies to hire veterans.

Disney officials said Tuesday that its Veterans Institute workshop in November will show some 300 small and mid-sized companies how to build veteran hiring programs of their own.

The workshop will feature experts from Disney's own veteran-hiring program, government officials and veterans' service organizations.

Since starting its own program last year, Disney has hired 2,200 veterans, including 1,500 in central Florida.
