The COVID-19 pandemic has created a demand for flexible, self-motivated employees who can operate under stress and hit the ground running. Veterans are filling this need for many companies, which is why the impact sourcing model is growing rapidly across the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) landscape.
As the race to containment continues, millions of Americans are moving their work spaces to their homes as states ask employers to offer flexible work arrangements, such as teleworking, while also developing plans to ensure long-term business continuity. Both companies and employees are facing an uphill battle in the months and years to come.
“Veterans are the perfect fit for today’s tough landscape as they possess the qualities that employers most need now,” says combat veteran Nick Cox of Datrose, a veteran-owned business process automation and outsourcing company. “Veterans regularly face stress in their military careers and they are experts of adapting and overcoming obstacles.”
Datrose’s veteran/military focused staffing initiative called “Salute and Recruit” has emerged as a ground-breaking program. The BPO provider has created a roadmap to ease the transition for these members, align them with third party partners, and ultimately develop a more qualified funnel of amazing talent.
In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to make the right hiring decisions. Hiring veterans can provide the benefits of governments tax incentives as well as matching well-qualified and motivated employees with the right positions where they can deliver long-term value to the organization.
Datrose is dedicated to changing the industry one veteran/military placement at a time and we’re excited to see the growth of both our clients and our program over the next few years. The military is in our DNA and we truly feel blessed to help the military community.
