MilitaryOneClick Names La Quinta Inns & Suites Military Hiring Program Top of Class

Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 29, 2013 - La Quinta Inns & Suites has created an enterprise-wide approach to embracing the military, specifically military families. Their effort starts with hiring veterans and military spouses. La Quinta focuses on providing portable jobs and careers for military families while also offering flexibility and advancement opportunities.

The La Quinta talent acquisition team participates in Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) Job Fairs, Spouse-Specific Hiring Fairs, and is one of the few participants that conduct interviews onsite during these events. They believe it’s important to have conversations with applicants, as a printed resume is only a portal to really understanding their passion for people and service— important core values of La Quinta’s employee ethos.

"At La Quinta, we want to hire veterans and military spouses because they have demonstrated leadership qualities of discipline, training and a passion for service. They are quick learners who work well as part of a team," said Derek Blake, Vice President, La Quinta's Military Programs.

La Quinta is a member of the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership’s (MSEP) Program, the 100,000 Jobs Mission and a founding member of the HOH Military Spouse Employment Advisory Council, where La Quinta has been instrumental in sharing best practices and recruiting other national companies to join the cause.

MilitaryOneClick and La Quinta’s team believes that military spouses are valuable assets in today’s workforce. If they’ve been “married to the military” for any length of time their volunteer work represents hours of experience in leading and organizing with skillful execution--experience not often listed on their resume. According to Jennifer Pilcher, Founder of MilitaryOneClick, "we are proud to partner with organizations, like La Quinta, who recognize not only the challenges military families endure, but also the tremendous value military spouses bring to these companies."
