I’m sure everyone who reads this would say employee retention is very important. Hiring new employees costs a vast amount of time and resources. Wouldn’t it be great for your company if you could easily find employees that have a significantly higher long-term retention rate?
We think so, which is why we don’t underestimate students or Veterans.
Every proud American company focuses on employing Veterans, right? If not, it could cost you more then you realize. Of course the individuals with years more experience on the civilian side, with extra certifications and prior industry experience are valuable. But they’re also the ones fielding 20 recruiters calling them to take the best opportunity from the highest bidder. However, in our experience, Veterans tend to be the best long-term and mission-focused employees you can find. Investing a couple of extra resources in order to develop them as employees will likely win you their loyalty for years to come.
Students, on the other hand may be a huge gamble, so the thinking goes: They haven’t proved themselves, they’re very green, and they’re still in school! Nevertheless, it may be worth considering that this student is likely going to be a faster learner and is already trained up on the newest cutting-edge technologies, processes and procedures. To us, students are the untapped gold mine because you can employ them as interns, build their experience, save money and strengthen the country’s future–all at the same time.
Also, you just might be surprised when they exceed every one of your expectations and set a new standard for success.
So, if you’re tired of hiring & training new employees who disappear after a couple of months, take another look at our Veterans & students–either way you go you can build loyalty and serve the interests of our country.
