Have you hired a Veteran today?

A survey asked employers who have hired veterans to indicate which attributes these veterans contributed to their organization. Here are some of the survey results:

• Disciplined approach to work (cited by 68 percent of employers surveyed)
• Ability to work as part of a team (63 percent)
• Respect and integrity (57 percent)
• Leadership (50 percent)
• Problem-solving skills (46 percent)
• Ability to perform under pressure (44 percent)
• Communication skills (37 percent)

In addition to the valuable traits listed above, military members with an honorable discharge are basically certified drug free. Plus, many veterans come with some level of security clearance which indicates trustworthiness. With all the intangible qualities veterans have to offer, you can see why employers who choose to hire from this unique candidate pool benefit greatly.
