Each year, about a quarter of a million veterans transition from active-duty service. Translating their military training and experience to the private sector can be a challenge—a challenge Slalom Veterans takes as both a great honor and a great opportunity.
Says Jeff Northcutt, cross-market lead for Slalom Veterans, “It’s about living the Slalom core value of Do what is right, always by honoring the sacrifice this group of men and women have made on behalf of our country. And it’s not just right—it’s smart. Harnessing the incredible talent and experience of our veterans benefits our clients, partners, employees, and our local communities.”
I learned patience in the military. People ask how I’m not frustrated by certain things. Patience allows me to see the bigger picture and realize that it’s just the moment that we’re in.
I learned to converse with people from hugely different backgrounds. We literally had Lords of the realm and private soldiers from the inner city. You learn to empathize with people on a very realistic level.
