The Importance of Appealing to Veterans
by Mike Schindler
In my free webinar, The Advantages of Hiring U.S. Veterans, I discuss the overall advantages veterans can add to your workforce. With more than 250,000 transitioning service members entering our communities every year, companies that understand the values, work ethic, and even incentives to recruit and leverage this highly trained and disciplined talent pool will benefit from increased morale and, in many cases, a better bottom line.
But understanding the values and traits veterans bring sometimes gets overshadowed by “myths” or perceptions fostered by media headlines. Do all veterans really have PTSD? Should companies be concerned veterans will respond negatively to loud noises? Are veterans too rigid and lack the ability to adapt to an every changing business environment? I address these questions and others in the webinar and cover many veteran-specific topics on my blog, The Military Wire.
