Happy Veterans’ Day.
“More organizations are focused on recruiting veterans.”
In an October, 2017, survey of 1,000 professionals, the recruitment firm Korn Ferry found that 58 percent said their organizations do have an unconscious preference toward hiring veterans.
When asked which military skill-sets are most appealing—leadership (45%), teamwork (20%), and goal focus (14%) topped the survey.
“Transitioning military members bring with them invaluable skills, experience, and traits—like precise communication, individual accountability, impeccable execution, and natural leadership,” said Bill Serba, of Korn Ferry.
Serba also noted that with low unemployment rates and increased competition for talented people, more organizations are focused on recruiting veterans.
