Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

One of the reasons why any employer would be hiring vets is the fact that these people are disciplined, and they know how to impose discipline to others. In today's society, discipline is something that is hard to impose to traditional employees. It is not impossible to enforce, if you could opt to hiring veteran for the position of manager or supervisor, it would be easier to require discipline from your employees. There might be a bit of resistance at first, but hiring vets who have strong leadership is definitely going to make your life easier.

Things to Remember

There are some things that you, as an employer, should consider when hiring veteran. One of these is how to ensure that hiring vets is going to benefit your company. In addition, you should also consider how to help in the growth of this hired service man or woman. Here is a short list of things that you need to consider and do to ensure that your working relationship with these personnel is fruitful:

Psychological Trauma

One of the reasons why some people are hesitant in hiring vets is the notion that persons who went to war have Post-traumatic stress disorder that might disturb the balance of the office. They believe that those with PTSD are violent or withdrawn. If you are going to generalize that every veteran has PSTD, you are losing a potential manager that is fit, mentally and emotionally stable. Remember that you can always ask this potential employee of his medical record if he is really willing to work for you. There is nothing bad in ensuring that he or she doesn't have PTSD.

Cultural Difference

Before hiring vets, the employer should be able to list down some rules and regulations that might be violated, such as being late for a meeting or talking at work. It is important to help the veteran that some people are not as disciplined as he is. If you are hiring vets for their disciplinarian skills, then you should ask him to work with you in creating a program that would work for the both the veteran and the company. Don't forget to remind him to have longer patience with the employees.

Inform Others

As the manager or head of the company, you should try to explain to your employees the cultural differences. Emphasize to your employees that hiring vets is an important undertaking for the company to improve management. They should also be able to adjust with this new personnel who is going to be their immediate supervisor.

More is better

If you are trying to introduce discipline among your employees, then hiring more than one veteran is a must. Hiring them will not only benefit your company when it comes to managing employees and increasing productivity, but will also help the veteran to cope up with the society.

The process of hiring veteran might be a little complicated and different from hiring a traditional employee, but the benefits that this disciplined and strong-willed veterans have can definitely help you in managing your company.
