Hiring Florida’s Heroes
Florida National Guardsmen and veterans of all branches of military service make great sacrifices to protect our freedom and keep us safe during natural and other disasters. To better support their employment needs as they return home, Governor Rick Scott on Jan. 24, 2012 led business, military, veteran and workforce leaders in launching the Hiring Florida’s Heroes campaign to connect businesses in need of high-quality talent with these dedicated, well-trained men and women.
Hiring Florida’s Heroes aims to advance the No. 1 goal of Florida’s workforce system – placing Floridians in jobs – by enhancing its efforts to work with employers to match them with veterans possessing the skills they need. In doing so, our state retains a critical, high-quality talent pool and the heroes who have served us so nobly can put their talents to work for Florida’s businesses, their communities and their families.
