Hyster Co. and its dealer network is working with Snelling Search’s Military Division to hire veterans of the U.S. armed forces for its dealers to grow their sales forces. Since November 2011, Hyster dealers have hired 32 veterans through the program.
“Our veterans are skilled, dedicated, high-character, hard-working individuals, and we want them on our team,” said Jonathan Dawley, president of Hyster Distribution. “At Hyster, we know the value provided by employees who have served in the U.S. military. We are actively pursuing veterans to deliver the very best in materials handling equipment and service to the industry through our expansive dealer network. The pool of skilled veterans is an ideal labor force for our dealers as Hyster continues to be a leader the industry.”
The company chose Snelling Search because of the military recruiting team’s ability to match skill sets to company culture for a long-term fit.
“MH appreciates the opportunity we’ve had to work with Snelling Search to recruit new sales personnel for our team,” said Fred Metzger, president of MH Equipment Co. “The Snelling team has gained an insightful understanding of MH’s culture and vision for qualified employment candidates, and provided a pre-screened pool of prospects from which we have made multiple hires.”
