Southwest Riverside County Military Affairs Committee’s “Bring in the Troops” Campaign Highlights Benefits of Hiring Veterans and Military Spouses

 
Murrieta, CA – January 11, 2021: Throughout January, the Southwest Riverside County Military Affairs Committee (SWRC MAC) will be highlighting the benefits to local businesses of hiring veterans and military spouses as their employees. The campaign is focused on bringing awareness to the region’s employers on the many talents, benefits, and varied experiences that veterans and spouses bring to the table. Riverside County’s veteran and active-duty population is remarkably high, averaging at 7% throughout the County but with areas of higher concentration, showing that the issue is both timely and important so employers can utilize the labor force to its fullest potential while benefitting and retaining more veterans and their families in the area.

Some employers have already discovered the benefits that comes with an active focus on hiring veterans and military spouses. CarMax in Murrieta says they are “committed to providing career opportunities to our military service members, veterans and their families. Our values of doing the right thing, putting people first, winning together and going for greatness align with those in the military community. Military experience, as well as the varied work experiences of Military Spouses, can often line up with a range of positions across the company. Their adaptability and willingness to learn fit in well with our evolving business model and continue to add tremendous value for our customers and communities. Once we get to know them and they learn about our people-first culture, work environment and career opportunities, they are amazed at how they can redefine their career journey with us.”

The campaign is the first of its kind in SW Riverside County and will surely bring attention to the positive attributes veterans and their families bring to the community.
