Building an Ecosystem

Power Home Remodeling instituted their Power Veterans Initiative to provide veterans and military spouses with the opportunities necessary to be challenged and develop into leaders. 

Listen in as Michael Hansen, National Director of Military Affairs, and Clayton Still, Regional Director of Military Affairs, discuss Power Home Remodeling’s benefits and inclusive community for the entire military family.

Top Takeaways from “Building an Ecosystem”

1. By focusing on ensuring military members are set up for success at Power Home Remodeling, the whole organization benefits.

“We focus on not just hiring the person but get them thriving because that creates an ecosystem that will then self perpetuate.” – Michael Hansen, National Director of Military Affairs, Power Home Remodeling

2. The entire military family is incorporated into Power Home Remodeling’s inclusive community.

“We look at the whole ensemble and the goal is creating an inclusive community. We don’t really differentiate between vet and spouse, you’re all part of the same military family for us. It’s a much more inclusive environment that allows everyone to find mentorship, find success, and find opportunity.”– Michael Hansen, National Director of Military Affairs, Power Home Remodeling

3. When transitioning out of the military, don’t just focus on the job title, but also make sure the company is a cultural fit.

“For me, it’s about the mission: it’s about being a part of a team, being a part of something bigger than yourself, and how much you’re challenged both inside and outside of the workplace.”– Clayton Still, Regional Director of Military Affairs, Power Home Remodeling
