I'll get right to it, a significant expense with a new hire is the cost of training.
An experienced military veteran – i.e. an electrician, a plumber, a welder – can be productive on the first day of work. Beyond their particular technical skills, they have experience being part of a team, following directions, getting to work on time and getting along with others.
They understand how to solve problems in difficult situations.
In my experience working with veterans, they…
- Take their job seriously
- Lead by example and
- Do quality work.
Bottom line, hiring a veteran is smart business.
