ADDING VALUE TO YOUR WORKFORCE

The ROI of Military Hires

Today’s armed forces are a highly trained, motivated workforce. They bring leadership and management

skills to the table — soft skills that are hardest to grow. Employers can teach business and industry skills,

but service members arrive with the talent and proficiencies needed to take any organization to the next

level.

Active duty or retired, most veterans and servicemembers embody certain core values unique tomilitary

service: attributes like discipline, battle-tested leadership, a solid work ethic, trainability, adaptability and

the ability to thrive under pressure.

Employers and hiring managers can access this desirable workforce through Operation Palmetto

Employment (OPE), South Carolina’s military hiring initiative. At no cost, OPE supports business owners

and hiring managers by providing pre-screened military applicants based on your qualifications. There

aremany opportunities to participate inmilitary-specific job fairs and hiring events statewide. Companies

that pledge to hire and retain South Carolina’s transitioning service members can also receive special

recognition and training by applying to become a certified Palmetto Military Employer (PME).
