The reasons why employers should strive to hire veterans go way beyond the “right thing to do,” mentality we’ve seen in the past. These talented individuals bring unique experiences, perspectives, skills, and mindsets not found anywhere else, not to mention the military community is one of the truly renewable sources of talent in the world.
So why do veterans make such great hires?
First and foremost, veterans’ unique skills and experiences make them valuable assets to any organization. Through their military training and service, veterans develop a strong work ethic, leadership skills, and the ability to work well under pressure. They are also adept at problem-solving and can adapt quickly to changing situations. Sounds like a quality hire to me…
The second is pretty straight-forward, it makes good business sense. Research has shown that companies that have a high percentage of veteran employees tend to outperform their competitors. This is because veterans are often highly motivated, disciplined, and committed to achieving their goals. They also tend to have lower turnover rates, which can save companies time and money in the long run.
