HONORING THE PAST, INVESTING
IN THE FUTURE
Every year on Veterans Day we all pause and honor the sacrifices, courage, and patriotism of the men and women who have worn a military uniform. America is the land of opportunity and a beacon of hope and freedom to the rest of the world because our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen have valiantly protected the liberties we hold most dear.
At ServiceCorps we believe in more than just honoring our veterans. Our business is proud to support our local veterans by supporting them to make a productive transition to the civilian work force. We match them to employment opportunities within the ServiceCorps workforce as well as working closely with the Veteran Support eco-system in the Pacific Northwest.
IT’S CLEARLY GREAT
We’re constantly looking for leaders who can invent, think big, have a bias for action and who want to deliver for customers. Veterans were put into leadership roles at early stages of their time in the service. The real world, front line and often battle proven leadership developed in the military had amazing and powerful results:
Accelerated learning curve: Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts. In addition, they can enter the workforce with identifiable and transferable skills proven in real-world situations. This background can enhance any organization’s productivity.
Leadership: The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation and inspiration. Veterans understand the practical ways to manage behaviors for results, even in the most trying circumstances. They also know the dynamics of leadership as part of both hierarchical and peer structures.
Teamwork. Veterans understand how genuine teamwork grows out of a responsibility to one’s colleagues. Military duties involve a blend of individual and group productivity. They also necessitate a perception of how groups of all sizes relate to each other and an overarching objective
Efficient performance under pressure: Veterans understand the rigors of tight schedules and limited resources. They have developed the capacity to know how to accomplish priorities on time in spite of tremendous stress. They know the critical importance of staying with a task until it is done right
Technology and globalization: Because of their experiences in the service veterans are usually aware of international and technical trends pertinent to business and industry. They can bring the kind of global outlook and technological savvy that all enterprises of any size need to succeed.
