THE VALUE OF A VETERAN

In a competitive business environment

VETERANS ARE ENTREPRENEURIAL

According to multiple studies commissioned by the U.S. Small Business Administration and others, military veterans are twice more likely than non-veterans to pursue business ownership after leaving service, and the five-year success rate of ventures owned by veterans is significantly higher than the national average.

VETERANS ASSUME HIGH LEVELS OF TRUST

Research studies focused on both military personnel and veterans indicate that the military service experience engenders a strong propensity toward an inherent trust and faith in co-workers, and also a strong propensity toward trust in organizational leadership. In turn, the academic literature broadly supports the finding that organizations where trust between co-workers–and between employees and leadership–is strong, organizational performance is enhanced.

VETERANS ARE ADEPT AT SKILLS TRANSFER ACROSS CONTEXTS/TASKS

Several studies focused on skills transfer have highlighted that military service members and veterans are particularly skilled in this ability. Research has attributed this finding to the fact that military training most often includes contingency and
scenario-based pedagogy, and as a result service members and veterans develop cognitive heuristics that readily facilitate
knowledge/skills transfer between disparate tasks and situations.

VETERANS HAVE [AND LEVERAGE] ADVANCED TECHNICAL TRAINING

Military experience, on average, exposes individuals to
highly advanced technology and technology training at a rate that is accelerated relative to non-military, age group peers.
Research validates the suggestion that this accelerated exposure to high-technology contributes to an enhanced ability to link technology-based solutions to organizational challenges, and also the transfer of technological skills to disparate work-tasks.

VETERANS ARE COMFORTABLE/ADEPT IN DISCONTINUOUS ENVIRONMENTS

Cognitive and decision-making research has demonstrated that the military experience is positively correlated to the ability to accurately evaluate a dynamic decision environment, and subsequently act in the face of uncertainty. Several studies highlight that this ability is further enhanced and developed in individuals whose military experience has included service in a combat environment.

VETERANS EXHIBIT HIGH-LEVELS OF RESILIENCY

According to multiple studies commissioned by the U.S. Small Business Administration and others, military veterans are twice more likely than non-veterans to pursue business ownership after leaving service, and the five-year success rate of ventures owned by veterans is significantly higher than the national average.

VETERANS EXHIBIT ADVANCED TEAM-BUILDING SKILLS

Research studies focused on both military personnel and veterans indicate that the military service experience engenders a strong propensity toward an inherent trust and faith in co-workers, and also a strong propensity toward trust in organizational leadership. In turn, the academic literature broadly supports the finding that organizations where trust between co-workers–and between employees and leadership–is strong, organizational performance is enhanced.

VETERANS EXHIBIT STRONG ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT

Several studies focused on skills transfer have highlighted that military service members and veterans are particularly skilled in this ability. Research has attributed this finding to the fact that military training most often includes contingency and
scenario-based pedagogy, and as a result service members and veterans develop cognitive heuristics that readily facilitate
knowledge/skills transfer between disparate tasks and situations.

VETERANS HAVE [AND LEVERAGE] CROSS-CULTURAL EXPERIENCES

Military experience, on average, exposes individuals to
highly advanced technology and technology training at a rate that is accelerated relative to non-military, age group peers.
Research validates the suggestion that this accelerated exposure to high-technology contributes to an enhanced ability to link technology-based solutions to organizational challenges, and also the transfer of technological skills to disparate work-tasks.

VETERANS HAVE EXPERIENCE/SKILL IN DIVERSE WORK-SETTINGS

Cognitive and decision-making research has demonstrated that the military experience is positively correlated to the ability to accurately evaluate a dynamic decision environment, and subsequently act in the face of uncertainty. Several studies highlight that this ability is further enhanced and developed in individuals whose military experience has included service in a combat environment.

Key Takeaways

KEEP IT SHORT AND SWEET:
Your elevator speech is a sales pitch. Be sure you can deliver your message in 30-45 seconds or less.

FOCUS ON THE ESSENTIALS:
Say who you are, what you do, and what you want to achieve.

BE POSITIVE AND PERSUASIVE:
Your time is limited. Focus on what you want to do, not what you don’t want to do. Be upbeat and flexible.

PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE:
Deliver your speech to a friend before you record it, so that you can be sure that your message is clear.
