INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--USIC, LLC (“USIC”), the leader in underground utility damage prevention, signed a proclamation of partnership with the U.S. Army Reserve’s P3O (Private Public Partnership) Program May 7, 2024, in a ceremony at the company’s corporate headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. The proclamation affirms USIC’s commitment to assisting soldiers and their families in overcoming barriers to obtaining meaningful employment opportunities to support mission readiness goals, enhance their financial stability, and create connections with the community.

The Army’s Public Private Partnership Office delivers support to link eligible Army Reserve team members to immediate and long-term employment opportunities. P3O ensures Army Reserve soldiers are successful in their civilian careers, which directly benefits the Army and the nation. More than 87% of Army Reserve team members integrate military service with civilian careers, providing the Army with professional skills, education, and expertise acquired in the private sector.

“USIC is proud to partner with the U.S. Army Reserve’s P3O Program to support soldiers and their families with access to career opportunities within our company,” USIC Chief Human Resources Officer Craig Haydamack stated. “We thank the Army Reserve for connecting us with its soldiers, who we find to be excellent candidates for a profession in underground utility damage prevention. Veterans make up nearly 10% of USIC’s nationwide workforce, a significant number that continues to grow due, in large part, to the fact that the skills and values acquired in the military align with our mission of protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure and ensuring public safety and with our core values of safety, integrity, excellence, respect, and pride.”
