Hiring military veterans with disabilities isn’t just feel-good altruism, it leads to strategic advantages. They’re determined, self-aware, goal-oriented, and inclusive. Today’s veterans have led effective teams in ambiguous environments. They have managed large budgets, improvised around uncertainty and accomplished team objectives in lieu of personal ambitions.
Enter Eli Hinson, former Marine, and a wife and mother with two disabilities – dyslexia and deafness in her left ear.
Sit down and talk with Eli and you’ll learn firsthand why hiring veterans makes good business sense. In her more than 16 years at global technology consulting firm, Booz Allen Hamilton, she has:
- Managed backend cybersecurity for more than 40 internal websites.
- Taken leadership roles in internal disability awareness programs.
- Volunteered for local charity events.
Clearly, employing veterans has some obvious benefits. They’re responsible, can execute commands in ambiguous professional environments, bring managerial skills to a team, and operate efficiently.
