10 Reasons to Hire a Veteran
If you cannot already tell from our website, we are strong advocates of the military community.
That is because we know the benefits that come with hiring a veteran, but in case you are still on the fence, here are ten reasons to consider adding them to your team.
They are Leadership Skilled
Leading by example, even in the very early stages of their service, they are put into leadership roles, but in a far more intensified environment than any civilian. This provides them with strong leadership skills that can be applied to the most trying of situations.
They can Perform Well Under Pressure
Even in challenging times with tight time constraints and a lack of resources, veterans will complete a goal proficiently. They are more than familiar with knowing when and how to prioritize tasks and have a strict obligation to ensure they are done right.
They are a Team Player
Being a team player is everything. From the moment they begin their training, they are in a team environment. Whether in a smaller or larger team, they know they must work together to achieve the collective goal.
They Have Many Transferrable Skills
Veterans are not afraid of change, making them an extremely adaptable asset. They have been trained to the highest level, are quick to develop new skills and are used to applying these to the most challenging scenarios every single day.
They Are Used to Working in a Diverse Workforce
They know the benefits of working in a diverse team. Having worked with diverse individuals during their service, they have no preference for race, gender, geographic origin, ethnic background, religion, economic status, mental or physical health.
Their Experience Goes Unmatched
It is safe to say that veterans gain an experience like no other. From being extremely tech-savvy, to globally aware, they can apply their experience in various ways to benefit a company.
They are Reliable & Trustworthy
Veterans have a strong sense of integrity and accountability, making them extremely trustworthy. Not to mention the fact they have already been cleared through extensive security checks. Not only does this provide far less risk, but it also makes for a nice saving for businesses as often, these investigations can be transferred with status.
They are Health & Safety Aware
They know why policies and procedures are in place. With this extensive training and knowledge of health and safety protocols, they are used to ensuring they are met in the interests of protecting their employees, materials, and property.
They Have a Strong Work Ethic
Because their life and success were very much dependent on everyone in their team, they have an extremely strong work ethic, willing to put the hours in to complete a task. They are used to regime and are not shy of non-traditional environments.
They Can Come with Government Assistance
Many veterans will be given government support for paid relocation. This can vary on the amount per individual, but this can certainly be attractive when businesses need to make new hires.
