Welcome Home Resumes (WHR), a non-profit committed to coaching, training and placing veterans into non-minimum wage jobs for successful entry into civilian life, and DNA Behavior (DNAB), the behavioral intelligence business platform that turns personality insights into performance, today announced the availability of an integration between the two human services platforms.
Connecting WHRs coaching and training program, 30-Day Boot Camp Program and DNABs cloud-based behavioral assessment system, Business DNA Natural Behavior Discovery, allows HR Professionals to provide a complete assessment of a candidate’s experience, talents and strengths to best coach them through the job training and placement process.
Veteran unemployment is an issue that has plagued the US since WW2. The result of failed systems and policies has led to the underemployment, homelessness and, at times, incarceration of some of our veterans. These are highly qualified individuals that performed a variety of complex tasks while serving in the military. The pay scale should accurately reflect the skills acquired through training and experience.
WHRs unique position as a non-profit supporting not only the vet but also the spouse and children free of charge for life sets it apart from other transitional programs. A career coach prepares the veteran for civilian employment using the WHR training program. This includes resume preparation, interview skills, career identification based on skills and one-on-one coaching. Plus a committed team of job recruiters/headhunters assists in sourcing viable jobs, procuring leads and other income producing opportunities. Joseph Corsino, Founder of Welcome Home Resumes, adds “Traditional paper resumes have their purpose, but we harness today’s technology to the advantage of our veterans so they can stand above the rest.”
Taking personalized career placement up a notch are the behavioral insights gained through the Business DNA Natural Behavior Discovery Process. The personality traits, strengths-based talents, and communication styles of the vet and their support network help to identify best potential roles and job fit within a given organization. Also, identifying core behavioral talents aids in structuring the best way to coach and train our vets to the next level of their career path.
While we recognize that no amount of money can fully compensate a veteran for their service, the Welcome Home Resumes and DNA Behavior teams are committed to helping all of those who have served to build upon their given talents and skill sets for finding the best employment possible to have a more successful transition into civilian life. Hugh Massie, DNA Behaviors CEO says: We are so committed to this program because of our purpose of helping people unlock their human potential and to Live With Meaning. The WHR program is one big step to helping our veterans recalibrate in the community to be productive and achieve their goals with enhanced fulfillment.
