Recently, Sharp Decisions was featured in Forbes and Fox News Opinion in discussing the importance of our new veterans program.
As the company approaches its fifth month of its V.E.T.S.™ (Vocations, Education, and Training for Service members) Program, it continues to grow and give these American heroes a career path they might not have been able to obtain otherwise.
“We have had an outpouring of response and support from our current clients, some who have their own veteran outreach initiatives,” Karen Ross, Sharp Decisions CEO and V.E.T.S.™ Program creator, said in a recent Forbes interview. “Many of the companies we work with have been very receptive to our ideas about training and right-shoring jobs for these heroes. The V.E.T.S.™ Program adds a different dimension to the Sharp Decisions story, and that resonates with many of our prospective clients as well.”
The reason the veterans from this program have such a high success rate is because they work in teams, as opposed to other work environments when they are forced to work alone. They are accustomed to working in a team environment.
During their training, they collaborated with one another and produced study materials to aid our trainees in the months and years to come, taking into account that not all of the trainees have the same learning curve.
These trainees come from different services, with backgrounds ranging from infantry to logistics to military police.
“This is the case for hiring veterans,” Ross said in a recent Fox News article. “They can see things other employees cannot. Hiring a veteran gives you a natural-born problem solver, who is most concerned with the ‘mission’—the goal that the employer has set out to achieve. That person will take whatever route is open to them for success without anyone ‘telling them’ to do it. They are not afraid to challenge the status quo. And perhaps most importantly, these individuals will act with selfless intent.”
