A Few Good Men and Women
Your employees are a key ingredient in maximizing the potential of your company so finding the right employee is critical. As employees, veterans bring with them a strong work ethic, dedication to the mission, exceptional training, and proven leadership skills. They are team players who understand the importance of teamwork in accomplishing the task at hand. These qualities manifest themselves in an individual who is often more productive and disciplined in their jobs.
There may be financial benefits to hiring veterans as well. One such program is the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service which can reimburse Employers for up to 50% of the Veteran’s salary for up to six months. Another is the federal tax incentive offered under the Work Opportunity Tax Credit which can contribute up to $2,400 per Veteran hired by companies. Here are additional examples of tax credits for hiring Veterans, http://www.blakechristian.com/tax_credits_hiring_veterans.html
In addition, Veterans have valuable background and security clearances that are required by many employer especially government contractors. More than 90% of military personnel have had background checks for various levels of security clearances.
