Hiring And Partnering With Former Military Non-Commissioned Officers
Can Create An Advantage For Your Business
Unless your were in the military, you may not be aware that many non-commissioned officers develop substantial skills over the course of their military careers that translate directly into a business environment. Non-Commissioned Officers develop management, technical, administrative, and even sales skills that can benefit companies both large and small. And, military personnel are used to and expect to be 100 percent accountable for the quality of the work that they produce.In fact, the SBA did a study three years ago and found that veterans had a significantly higher success rate as entrepreneurs than civilians.
Yet, despite these facts, many highly-trained Non-commissioned officers encounter unfortunate negative bias when they leave their military careers behind and seek employment in the private sector. Join Russell Levy, Employment director at Veterans First, as he discusses the benefits and opportunities of hiring veterans as employees and even partners. You will discover:
- How veterans can help to turn around unproductive departments within your company
- Unique business skills taught within the military that college graduates never learn
- Programs to help place veterans within companies that can support your own business needs
