U.S. Veterans in the Workforce : Why the 7 percent are America's Greatest Assets - (Paperback)
About this item
We’ve all heard the axiom that “people” are the greatest asset in every organization. But are all people “equal”? Designed to be a bit edgy, this book reveals how some people - today’s Veterans – often bring more positive to the table than their civilian-trained constituents and how this difference is a benefit to the organization.
Navy veteran Mike Schindler, Founder and CEO of Operation Military Family, tells the stories of our returning heroes so that we might gain a true understanding of life for returning vets and their families. While addressing some of the hardships of returning vets, Schindler also reveals another side of America's heroes?the side that celebrates the triumphs and hirable qualities offered by our veterans including:
- A Strong Work Ethic
- A Positive Attitude
- The Willingness to Do More
- Strong Job Preparedness
- Being Solution Minded
- High Energy
U.S. Veterans in the Workforce sheds light on the American heroes who come home to new heroic endeavors?the ones that make America worth fighting for. It creates a bridge between the military and civilian divide and helps both veterans and civilians understand how their differences contribute to the overall vision.
