DALLAS, May 1, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Brinker International, Inc. (NYSE: EAT) announces a partnership with the Army Partnership for Youth Success Program (PaYS), which connects companies with young veterans looking for corporate jobs after serving their country. As the first national restaurant company to partner with Army PaYS, Brinker proudly begins a commitment to assist former U.S. military personnel in transferring their skills from real-world situations into restaurant industry careers.

The company honored the new partnership with an official presentation to members of the Dallas branch of the United States Army Recruiting Battalion at Brinker International headquarters this past Friday, April 27, 2012.

"The Army PaYS program provides a crucial service to our Army Veterans by matching skill sets between service members and companies," said Valerie Davisson, executive vice president and chief PeopleWorks officer for Brinker International. "As a new partner, we take this commitment very seriously and are excited to actively seek and offer viable job opportunities to these brave, young men and women who have fearlessly served our country."

"Corporate partners like Brinker give young Veterans great career opportunities while also serving as a motivating factor behind Army PaYS recruits deciding to lay their lives on the line for the United States," said Lt. Col. Russell Elizondo of U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion Dallas. "Thank you for your commitment to invest in the future of our troops."
