B&W Energy Services is proud to recruit some of America’s Finest and believe that their inherent skill set and character traits make them excellent candidates for B&W team members. Why, you ask? Well, here are four reasons why we believe Veterans make excellent employees.
- Veterans perform well in high-stress situations. These individuals have been put through some of the most intense situations known to man—they’ve gone to war for our country. You can count on them to go to “war” with the challenges they might encounter on the job site, and stay calm and collected while they strategically carry out a process to a successful outcome.
- They respect the importance of the process. When you are working with a team of veterans, there is no need to explain why following procedures are crucial—they already know. Veteran’s military training equips them with the conditioning needed to follow a process flawlessly—an attribute that is critical on the job site. With the difficulties a large project can bring, it is essential to have a team that meticulously follows your process and respects the framework of your company’s organization.
- Veterans understand the strength of a team. Veterans know that the road to success is never a one-man show—there is always strength in numbers. Building a team out of individuals who already know how to operate in a team-centered environment saves you the headache that can come with transitioning individuals into the mindset needed to be a good team member.
- Veterans are made up of perseverance and confidence. These two characteristics are the makings of a good employee, and from their time in the military, veterans know how to hone in on them. The job site is not always a pleasant place—we all know this. When the process gets tedious and time begins to run short, veterans are the ones you can count on to step up and be leaders in what they do and consistent in the quality of work they produce.
