Veteran Recruitment

Championing Veterans to Strengthen Your Business

Honoring veterans is central to our vision at Hire Velocity. Our founder, Byron West, served as an officer in the Navy, and 20% of our management team are veterans. With every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces represented among our employees, nearly 1 in 10 is a veteran. We believe strongly in championing our nation’s heroes and the value they bring to organizations. We work closely with local, state, and federal resources, military organizations, and nonprofits dedicated to helping veterans transition from military to civilian life, and we participate in veteran career fairs to not only hire veterans at Hire Velocity but also attract military talent for our clients’ veteran recruiting initiatives.

Veteran Recruiting: Strategic Advantage of Hiring Veterans

The military instills discipline, leadership skills, and a strong work ethic into its service members. When those service members return home, they bring with them valuable talents and experiences which translate into strategic assets for your organization.

Among the qualities they contribute are:

Exceptional leadership

Integrity

Technological insight

Global outlook

Innovation

Performance under pressure

Attention to detail

Professionalism

Background of diversity and inclusion

Determination

These traits prepare veterans to be outstanding team players and dynamic leaders who enhance your organization’s productivity and strengthen your company goals.

The Challenge of Veteran Recruitment

There are nearly half a million unemployed veterans seeking jobs in the United States. Eighty percent of them are willing to relocate for the right job, yet the unemployment rate among veterans remains at least 20% higher than the national average for some veteran groups. Organizations can help address these challenges by taking intentional steps to recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
