The Advantages of Hiring Veterans
Dan here, welcome back to the Official Tactical Store blog!
We all know that they make the best employees on the planet, but I wanted to write something that you could share with others who may not think so to help persuade them.
Veterans Can Make Strategic Decisions
Since basic, military personnel are trained to make extremely fast and calculated decisions.
As a result, they embrace their intuition. They take in every piece of information they can process before making a quick decision, so they can be trusted to make the best choice at any time.
Veterans are Incredibly Responsible
Just like decision making, military personnel are trained to take their responsibilities very seriously from the day they set foot on basic training.
It is ingrained into their psyche that mistakes, laziness, and oversight can lead to their brothers being seriously injured, or worse.
This behavior can not be unlearned, and stays with them even after deployment.
Veterans Have Incredibly Strong Worth Ethic
When someone is in the military, half-assing anything is never an option.
Every task assigned is for a very specific reason, and veterans understand this very well.
Combine this with the every day insanity of being deployed in action, you can trust that they understand the meaning of hard work.
Veterans Respect Health & Safety
This is especially helpful if someone is looking to hire in the health or safety fields.
While operating in the military, one muse adhere to extremely strict health and safety protocols.
To top this off, they will have a proven track record performing in a drug-free workplace.
Veterans are Trained Leaders
There are no better leaders than those who are in the armed forces.
They are excellent to have as an employee for many reasons, but their leadership quality of being outstanding is sure to have an effect on your other employees.
Also, them being able to take charge efficiently under stressful situations can really save your business in times of need.
I never understood why some people don't want to hire veterans, they are not only amazing people but also amazing employees.
Hopefully this article can help sway those who disagree into some common sense.
Thanks for reading, and God Bless America.
