NextOp Receives Donation from Waste Management

Houston — February 27, 2018– NextOp, Inc. is pleased to announce it has received a $5,000 grant from Waste Management to support NextOp’s innovative veteran employment programming.

The overall goal and mission of NextOp is to recruit, train and place high-performing military leaders into industry careers, which would not be possible without the assistance received from corporations like Waste Management. The NextOp Employment Program has placed over 1,000 veterans into industry careers since launching in March 2015.

With this grant, NextOp Veterans will be able to successfully guide more veterans through their post-military transition and place them into their next career.

At Waste Management, they place special emphasis on hiring veterans. In 2017, they hired 1,053 veterans into a wide spectrum of positions which accounted for 8.6 percent of their U.S. hires. They are proud to exceed federal VEVRAA and USERRA hiring standards every year.

“Many of our veterans have extensive operations and logistics skills and experience from their time in service.  NextOp’s collaboration with Waste Management will help our team match more of our highly skilled military candidates with great careers in their many locations and lines of business,” stated NextOp Executive Director John Boerstler.

Wes Reel from Waste Management talent acquisition states, “Waste Management considers military veterans a valuable population for talent because of the many tangible (training and experience) and intangible (work ethic and character) qualities they bring to us. Additionally, certain fields from the military translate particularly well, such as military ground transportation, vehicle fleet maintenance and construction/engineering.”

Value of Veteran Recruiting Initiatives

Who are you?

John is Executive Director of NextOp, a non-profit organization whose mission is to recruit, train, and place high-performing mid-level enlisted military leaders into industry. John served in the United States Marine Corps from 1999-2007 as an infantry unit leader.  His overseas assignments include Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, Jordan, Djibouti, and Kenya.  In 2009 John helped found the Lone Star Veterans Association (LSVA), which has become the largest network of Post 9/11 veterans in Texas. In 2015, John worked with regional leaders to establish the Combined Arms network, a first of its kind community-based transition system built to accelerate the impact of veterans on Houston.

As a Marshall Fellow, John has also traveled to the United Kingdom, Israel and Denmark to write comparative papers on their military transition systems and is planning to travel to Ukraine in Spring 2017 to assist in the development of their military transition infrastructure.

What do you do at NextOp?

Mostly serve as the janitor but also work with the board of directors on passing an annual budget, approving policy, setting strategic vision and authoring of 3 year strategic plan for the organization.

Serve as the chief financial officer, programs officer, development officer (fundraising), and anything that helps build the brand with military installations, corporate partners, foundations, grant making institutions, our 3 advisory boards, mentor universe, strategic partners and generally anyone who will support our veterans!

Value of Veteran Recruiting Initiatives

The value of military and veteran recruiting initiatives not only impacts working culture, safety, productivity, team orientation, and respect within an organization, learning how to recruit, train, and retain veteran employees has proven to have a significant impact on a company’s bottom line.  The Corporate Executive Board recently found that veteran employees not only have a lower turnover rate than their civilian counterparts, but also have a higher productivity rate.  So, veteran employees do not only save the company money but they make companies more money too!

We all know that veterans’ “soft skills” are the most sought after for companies such as showing up early, staying late, learning things faster, adapting to the mission, showing respect to supervisors, and working well in teams.  Veterans also come with significant hard skills too, depending on their MOS or military occupational specialty.  Although the military does not do a great job of providing civilian credentials for many of these learned skills, veterans may be able to test into mechanically and technically oriented positions right out of the military, they just need the chance to prove their value.

By developing a military or veteran recruiting initiative, companies can take advantage of these great opportunities to improve their workforce by attracting more military talent.  It does not have to cost a lot either.  For example, if you already have employees who are veterans, recruiting and hiring managers can activate them to attend job fairs, design military-specific marketing collateral and provide their perspective on how to best develop a veteran recruiting plan. HR professionals can also tap into expert military recruiting organizations like NextOp to source veteran candidates from regional bases and other marketing portals in the community.

There are many cost-effective solutions to recruit, train, and retain military employees into an organization such as insourcing and outsourcing – or a combination of both – to ensure your team is successful in taking advantage of America’s greatest human resource.

The Benefits of Mentorship

mentor-soldier

During your time in the service, you were trained to lead. In the office or in the field,  you know leadership involves taking your junior service members to the side whether in a group or individually and teaching them the ropes.

You mentored them; you taught them how to think and take care of others, you gave them the tools necessary to succeed.

Your enthusiasm and knowledge made them the leaders they are today.

Now that many service members are transitioning, they need your guidance again. Remember how you felt when you made that decision to transition.

Construction Companies meet Soldiers on Fort Polk Industry Day

fort-polk-industry-day

On August 3, fifteen different construction companies gathered at Fort Polk, La. to speak about their experiences making the transition from military service into the construction sector.

Companies representing on the industrial construction side included Bechtel, CB&I, KBR, Jacobs Engineering, Cajun Industries, Performance Contractors, Turner Industries, UPS Industrial Services, along with Marek and Adaptive Construction Solutions, which trains soldiers to become NCCER-accredited ironworkers on the commercial construction side.

Cheniere was the only owner-company in attendance, since their partnership with Bechtel to establish an innovative welding program at Fort Polk has enjoyed so much success in transitioning soldiers to craft industrial workers.

All of these companies serve on the Construction Industry Advisory Board for NextOp, a Houston-based organization that helps recruit, train, and place high-performing middle-enlisted leaders into the energy and construction sectors in the Gulf Coast region.

The board meets quarterly to discuss ideas on how to pipeline more military into the construction sector, how to help positively impact military credentialing policy by partnering with SAME, and to have a better awareness of what opportunities and projects are coming together for each partner. It’s not a competitive atmosphere but one of collaboration as all companies are united in the mission to recruit more veterans into the industry.

Fort Hood will be the group’s next target as one of the largest bases in the world that boasts the largest population of transitioning soldiers – over sixteen thousand a year – and home to six Army Engineering Battalions.

Fort Hood transitions 250 soldiers per week on average and many do not know how much potential exists in transitioning to a career in construction. NextOp’s job is to help educate these soldiers by engaging them on base via job fairs, employer briefings, and by coordinating industry visits with the transition assistance program leadership.

NextOp doesn’t want the industry or your company to hire veterans because you think it’s the “right” thing to do. We want you to hire veterans because it makes your jobsites more productive, safe, and team-oriented. Together we will all help build a better future by pipelining more military talent into our industry.

If you’d like to get involved with NextOp’s Construction Advisory Board or participate in an upcoming industry day or job fair, please email them at [email protected] or go online to register as a Corporate Partner by logging onto www.nextopvets.org.
