Hiring Red, White & You!

Thursday, November 5, 2020

9 am – 12 pm

Launched in 2011 as a joint initiative hosted by the Texas Workforce Solutions, in partnership with the office of the Governor, Texas Medical Center, and the Texas Veterans Commission, Hiring Red, White & You! connects veterans and their spouses with employers who are seeking veterans’ exceptional skills. The hiring events are at no cost to employers or job seekers. Since 2011Hiring Red, White & You! has connected more than 98,600 job seekers, including 38,925 veterans and spouses, along with 16,650 employers and over 2,700 same-day hires.

Connecting Texas employers to qualified former U.S. military service members and their spouses can be an asset to businesses. Veterans are trained to adapt to change, take initiative and learn quickly. By hiring more veteran and veteran spouse candidates, employers can reduce turnover, maintain a more stable workforce over time, and employers who hire veterans and their spouses may earn up to $9,600 in federal tax credits through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program.
