Veterans: 5 Reasons Why You Should Hire One

Veterans make great employees

Veterans Day is this Saturday, November 11. It is a day to remember all those men and women who have served or are currently serving in uniform. It’s also an opportunity to acknowledge the selflessness of these individuals and pay tribute to their character and their unique qualities.

Veterans share certain qualities that they gained from their time in the military. It makes them particularly good employees. If you have openings in your organization, here are the top five reasons why you should consider hiring a veteran.

Veterans Have Leadership

The military trains leaders. It is at the core of what they do. As a result, veterans understand how to manage people to get the best results.

Teamwork

The military is a giant team. No one soldier, airman, sailor or marine can win a battle or carry out an objective alone. Each person has a duty and all are dependent on each other for success. This credo translates well to the business world.

Performance Under Pressure

Is there any more high-pressure situation than what a military person experiences when they are under fire? Veterans have been in life and death settings and are trained to perform in them. Having worked under the ultimate pressure, these individuals can easily handle the stresses of any job.

Respect for Procedures

Veterans understand the chain of command and how important it is to follow the rules of the organization. They also know how important each role can be, even if it is not one that gets a lot of attention. Because of this, veterans can work at any level and have success.

Proven Ability to Learn

Veterans can pick up new skills and concepts quickly and put them into action. Think about the incredible number of skills they need to learn to fight a battle? These individuals know how to learn and can put that knowledge to use.

The Bottom Line

The efficiency of our military is really an indication of how well our personnel are trained. Any organization would benefit from having individuals with that level of training and accomplishment.
