Did you know that there are 100,000 active duty military personnel and over 29,000 veterans in Beaufort County? 
They could be your next hire.
Workers with military backgrounds – whether they or their spouses served as active duty members – bring a skillset to businesses that can’t adequately be described on a written resume. Studies have shown that they are more adept at transferring their skills across different scenarios, are loyal, can adapt to different situations quickly, and think outside the box.
Earlier this month, we shared information about SkillBridge and Hiring Our Heroes on our Power Hour Tele-Town Hall. We’re partnering with these programs as part of our workforce initiatives to help local businesses fill vacant positions at no cost, and also help active service members transition to civilian life. Click here to hear an overview of the programs.
Tomorrow is “Hire a Veteran Day.” We encourage you to check out Hiring Our Heroes and SkillBridge or contact our Vice President of Public Policy and Small Business Tom Henz to see how employing a transitioning military service member can benefit your workforce.
Make it a great week!

Bill Miles,
President & CEO
