The Business Case for Hiring Veterans

Seattle Post-Intelligencer (05/07/12)

A 2011 Apollo Research Institute survey of 831 hiring managers found that 39% viewed the hiring of military personnel less favorably when considering issues related to post traumatic stress disorder. Former Army doctor and psychiatrist Harry Croft says employers should consider hiring veterans if they want dedicated and loyal employees who think quickly and pay attention to detail. He says employers should know the symptoms of PTSD to help them handle veterans who may be struggling with it, and they should understand that PTSD does not involve violent behavior. Employers should understand that veterans work better in pairs or groups, offer them someone with whom they can discuss their PTSD in confidence, and hire veterans not because of tax breaks or patriotism but because they are the best candidates for the job.
