"Veterans are a great source of talent for Tesla, and we're going after it."

As Tesla Motors expands its workforce to launch the Model X crossover SUV, they are actively seeking to employ veterans. "We want to be known throughout the veteran community as a great place to work," said Arnnon Geshuri, Tesla's vice-president of human resources. "Veterans are a great source of talent for Tesla, and we're going after it."

Veterans are a good fit for Tesla because most garnered high-level technical, electrical and mechanical skills while in the service - proficiences well-suited to building electric cars. Veterans are also accustomed to working in tight-knit teams. 

Greg Reichow, vice-president of production, says the company is actively hiring veterans because they've found them to be outstanding employees who support Tesla's sense of mission. "At Tesla, we're not just building cars. We're trying to transform transportation," Reichow said. "[Veterans] know how to lead teams, focus teams and function on teams, and they have incredible integrity and discipline."

Tesla is not only aggressively recruiting veterans for their workforce, they're also committed to sustaining a company culture where veterans feel supported and understood. At monthly veteran meetings, all participants are encouraged to share ideas on how to improve internal programs; and Veterans Day is a companywide paid holiday. Tesla is also supportive of deployments, holding positions for employees for years while they are in the field - and working actively to make the transition back to company seamless.

While many employers have made commitments to hiring veterans, that's often insufficient: many veterans can feel isolated in civilian jobs, or secure positions without clear opportunities for advancement. Having veteran clubs within an organization makes a noticeable impact on helping veterans feel truly supported and appreciated. 

"'A corporate hiring commitment is often not enough,' said Colleen Corliss, a spokeswoman for Swords to Plowshares, a San Francisco-based group that helps veterans break through the cultural, educational, psychological and economic barriers they often face in their transition back to the civilian world. 'Tesla has really made an effort to forge relationships among veterans, and it really makes a difference. Younger veterans are interested in long-term careers with technical skills, and knowing that there is a veteran community within a company goes a long way toward retention.'"

"Hiring veterans is not just the right thing to do. It's the smart thing to do," said Bryan Goettel, director of communications for Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. "Veterans make great employees; they bring so many skills that help a company thrive."
