Veteran’s Day is the perfect time not only to honor our service members, but also to recognize the valuable set of traits that veterans bring to the professional world. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs outlines several coveted characteristics common among military veterans, including follow through, discipline, and work ethic.
Military.com also lists 10 reasons to hire vets:
- Accelerated learning curve
- Diversity and inclusion in action
- Efficient performance under pressure
- Respect for procedures
- Technology and globalization
- Conscious of health and safety standards
- Triumph over adversity
