Why Should You Have a Veteran Hiring Program?

They Come to You Accomplished and Adjusted

As a veteran owned and operated business, we know firsthand the value veterans can bring.


The feedback we get is that most companies prefer veterans to have some experience in the private sector before coming to work for them.


It's a good idea for everyone involved. Transitioning veterans gain valuable insight and understanding from entering the workforce. It can be a sharp learning curve, but it is an important part of their education.


84% of our veteran candidates have worked at least (1) one private sector job following their military service before we recruit them to join companies like yours.

Understanding that Actions and Behaviors Reflect on the Organization

Military personnel, like other public servants, are always under scrutiny whether on a mission, back at the base, or on leave. They understand that everything they do and say reflects on the integrity and reputation of the organization. 


Innovation

Just as in the private sector, there are many opportunities for improving processes and results. Being in the field requires adapting to uncertain or changing circumstances. Remote locations make it impossible to receive assistance from back-up teams, which further develops innovative thinking. 


Preparedness and Flexibility

Readiness for deployments and impromptu operations plays a central role in many military job descriptions. Making sure that equipment is operating correctly and that supplies are ready allows responsiveness to organizational needs. And, understanding that uncertainty is the norm yields flexible employees. 


Quick Thinking

Missions and field exercises require leaders to quickly analyze situations, continuously process new and changing information, and make sound decisions. Real-world scenarios with life-or-death consequences develop focused thinking and quick action under pressure.

Tax Credits for Hiring a Veteran

  • Businesses that hire eligible unemployed veterans can take advantage of a Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC).


  • The Returning Heroes Tax Credit now provides incentives of up to $5,600 for hiring unemployed veterans. The Wounded Warriors Tax Credit doubles the existing Work Opportunity Tax Credit up to $9,600, for long-term unemployed veterans with service-connected disabilities.
