Things are heating up around the PGS headquarters with summer in full swing, but at least the heat wave is behind us. Independence day is coming up and surely everyone is looking forward to celebrating this great country’s independence with their closest family and friends, however now is also an important time to reflect on some of the people who make our country great–our veterans. This country’s first veterans fought to secure our freedom and our veterans since then have fought to protect it.
At PGS we are always mindful of all the good our veterans do for us, hence why we are passionate about matching veterans with good jobs. And we aren’t the only ones who think so. Military.com recently released a list detailing why hiring a veteran is a good thing:
- Accelerated learning curve: Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts.
- Leadership: The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration.
- Teamwork: Veterans understand how genuine teamwork grows out of a responsibility to one’s colleagues.
- Diversity and inclusion in action: Veterans have learned to work side by side with individuals regardless of diverse race, gender, geographic origin, ethnic background, religion, and economic status as well as mental, physical, and attitudinal capabilities.
- Efficient performance under pressure: Veterans understand the rigors of tight schedules and limited resources.
- Respect for procedures: Veterans have gained a unique perspective on the value of accountability.
- Technology and globalization: Because of their experiences in the service, veterans are usually aware of international and technical trends pertinent to business and industry.
- Integrity: Veterans know what it means to do “an honest day’s work.” Prospective employers can take advantage of a track record of integrity, often including security clearances.
- Conscious of health and safety standards: Thanks to extensive training, veterans are aware of health and safety protocols both for themselves and the welfare of others.
- Triumph over adversity: In addition to dealing positively with the typical issues of personal maturity, veterans have frequently triumphed over great adversity.
