How many times have you found yourself around a conference room table in the ever so familiar staff meeting and as a leader or even as a key player in the process you have wished that some of the team members would learn how to say anything besides, "well we can't support that given our current workload" or "we are understaffed and don't have the budget to make that happen".Many civilians can agree that at times there can easily be a rut that companies find themselves in.

Why You Should Hire Military Veterans for Your Team?

  1. 1. How many times have you found yourself arounda conference room table in the ever so familiarstaff meeting and as a leader or even as a keyplayer in the process you have wished that someof the team members would learn how to sayanything besides, "well we cant support thatgiven our current workload" or "we areunderstaffed and dont have the budget to makethat happen".Many civilians can agree that at times there caneasily be a rut that companies find themselves in. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  2. 2. Which they have been trained to onlyaccomplish work in a certain way and through acertain process, limiting them in terms of theiradaptability as a company and as a group ofindividuals.Think now instead of a group of teammembers, each with the mindset and mentalitythat moved instantly beyond a negativeresponse and searched for ways to make morehappen with less and these individuals wouldneed to be comfortable with doing this on a dailybasis. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  3. 3. What youll find is an untapped resource that isour nations Veterans, fresh from a decade ofinnovating and adapting to everything from ThirdWorld countries and a simple need for a fieldexpedient shower or a more complex anti-remote controlled IED device that quicklychanges the enemys ability to stage attacks withexact precision.These Veterans have, for years, been forced tobe comfortable with having much less in the wayof timely adequate equipment upgrades thatmatch the circumstances they face. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  4. 4. Take for instance that we stormed to Baghdad in19 days, that we did it in un-armored Humveesthat were painted green vice the tan fullyarmored versions that would come years laterand provide slightly better camouflage in adesert.Marines, Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen have it as away of life to take whatever it is they have andmake it into whatever it is that needs to beaccomplished, this mindset is a valuable asset toany company looking to breathe a resilientattitude into their recession-to-recovery strategy. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  5. 5. As information moves faster and faster in todaysworld via the internet, phones and an evergrowing list of new technologies, apps and socialmedia, many companies are wondering howthey can maintain an individual mindset for theiremployees that will move as rapidly from idea toidea and from change to change as the world isalready doing.Again we find Veterans as having a naturaladvantage for improving a companysresponsiveness and rapid adaptability potential. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  6. 6. Veterans who have served during the Iraqand Afghanistan wars have been forced tomatch toe-to-toe with an enemy that is crudeyet effective and who continuously developsnew and more potent ways to bring harm toAmerican forces.This daily driver toward constant improvementof processes, systems and products issomething that all Vets will bring with them toa civilian team. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  7. 7. It is a matter of life or death for some to bethinking ahead to how a better way to dosomething as simple as throw away your trashmay save lives and make it harder for theenemy to engage with you effectively.In addition most all Veterans have beentrained since boot camp to respond quicklyand effectively in the face of stress and as wecall it, "the fog of war". www.GreenCollarVets.org
  8. 8. I am sure that nearly each and every Veterancan tell some story at some point of waking upunexpectedly and having to go from zero to fullymindful of a complex situation within onlyminutes.This well programmed response to sort rapidlythrough information and derive simplicity from thecomplex is a trait that gets developed well in themilitary and can be a huge resource to any teamas the current economic situation continues toprovide rapidly shifting ground on which to stand. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  9. 9. There are numerous other examples of Veteransadaptability whether it be ever changing militaryupgrades requiring training and re-training onnew technology, equipment or practices,the ability for Veterans to move to a new locationevery 2-3 years with remarkable ease or the rapiddeployments that many have done in which theywere given sometimes only two weeks to get theirwhole lives ready for a 7-12 month tour. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  10. 10. The main take away is that your team could use anindividual who has been highly trained as a task-oriented and disciplined worker with the flexibility andadaptability to shift gears at a moments notice andbe actively engaged in a different direction asneeded only sentences later.Veterans are the best untapped resource that thiscountry has to not only brought about a strongeconomic recovery as was seen post-WWII, but alsoto shape innovation and growth in a number of hightech and green sectors looking for the tipping point. www.GreenCollarVets.org
  11. 11. Green Collar Vets is a non-profit organizationwhos goal is to give green jobs to US militaryveterans.If you want to support our cause please visitwww.GreenCollarVets.org today! www.GreenCollarVets.org
