Hiring former military personnel into corporate environments brings a multitude of benefits that extend beyond their specialized skill sets. Despite the preconceived notions about the lack of adaptability of ex-military individuals, they possess a wealth of qualities that can greatly enrich a corporate setting.

By overcoming these stereotypes, organizations can tap into a reservoir of disciplined, goal-oriented, and resilient professionals who have demonstrated their ability to excel under pressure. Their extensive training in teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, and effective communication can catalyze innovation within the company and foster an environment of collaboration. Furthermore, integrating veterans into corporate culture not only breaks down misconceptions but also encourages diversity of thought, contributing to a well-rounded workforce capable of approaching challenges from various angles in an often untapped talent pool.

Also, transitioning former military personnel into corporate roles doesn’t only benefit the organizations themselves, but also has a positive impact on the community and society at large. Veterans often face challenges as they navigate the shift from military to civilian life, and providing them with meaningful employment can alleviate some of these difficulties.

In this episode, we talk with Robyn Grable of Talents ASCEND, an AI skills-based talent sourcing program.
