Why Hire an Olympic Athlete?

Posted on

Swifter, Higher, Stronger.   (Citus, Altus, Fortius) That is the Olympic Motto and something world-class athletes strive for everyday.

So why are top companies and top athletes a great fit?  Companies hire Team USA Career Program participants because top performing athletes have a unique skill set including out-of-the-box problem solving skills,  excellent time management and the determination to give 100% of themselves to be the best at what they do—on the field or on the job.

Their quest to be the best can inspire their co-workers everyday . . . and the energy and drive they bring to the workplace, which is not something you will find on a resume!
