With this same thought in mind, John Sondag, the Missouri president of AT&T, hires veterans for his business and encourages other business owners to consider doing the same. "For nearly 100 years we've provided career-specific training and placement assistance for transitioning military personnel, veterans, wounded soldiers as well as their spouses," he says. "The self-discipline, teamwork and skills veterans gain from being a part of our armed forces are many of the same values we look for at AT&T."
Rather than simply hiring veterans to fill jobs and get them back to work, AT&T goes a step further by recruiting veterans into the right careers by matching their military experience, soft skills and career motivations to bring them into career fields with long-term growth opportunities for each individual.
Since veterans self-identify their military status, the company does not know how many veterans it employs; however, AT&T recently doubled its goal of hiring veterans and their family members over the next five years to 10,000. "The original goal was set in April with the White House's Joining Forces initiative," says Sondag.
AT&T also announced that it is leading an initiative with JPMorgan Chase and the 100,000 Jobs Mission to create the veteran talent exchange vtx.jobs. "The exchange enables active-duty military and veteran job candidates to 'opt in' to a talent-sharing database to facilitate the sharing and referral of veteran candidates among participating 100,000 Jobs Mission member companies," says Sondag. "AT&T recently launched a military spouse career site that showcases the breadth of AT&T's portable and virtual careers across our U.S. locations and shares testimonials from our military spouse employees."
According to Sondag, these programs benefit not just veterans but also the companies doing the hiring. "Many of the veterans we hire show characteristics of self-discipline, teamwork and leadership that are some of the same values in our current culture," he says. "I encourage all businesses to increase opportunities for veteran employment. Collaborating with other corporations such as the 100,000 Jobs Mission is a way to reach a larger pool of talent. A collaboration also allows companies to share resources for veteran recruiting and make the transition to civilian life better for veterans."
Overall of the many benefits of hiring veterans, Sondag sees leadership, initiative self-discipline, experience, resilience, technical skills, dependability and a team-oriented focus as some of the best and most common qualities. Submitted 212 days ago
