Why Hiring Veterans is a Sound Business Decision

As a veteran-owned business, Exegistics has unique insight into both military and civilian cultures.

Stephen Olds, Founder and CEO, served for seven years in the Marine Corps before establishing Exegistics. He knows from firsthand experience the valuable skills and character traits service members develop while in the military, as well as the challenges they face when they enter civilian jobs. Olds advocates for companies from all industries to hire more veterans – not just because it’s good for the country but because it’s beneficial for their bottom line.

“Veterans are disciplined team players that can bolster a wide variety of businesses,” he says. “No longer is hiring a veteran a good idea, it’s good business.”

Olds emphasizes that veterans form an underutilized pipeline of talent – which in a time of low unemployment, companies simply can’t afford to ignore. Of the 1.3 million active duty servicemembers in the United States, 12% will transition into the civilian workforce every year. These 150,000 veterans bring diverse perspectives and advantageous skill sets to employers who are smart enough to hire them.
