TYLER (KYTX) -The Express Employment Professionals office in Tyler will be hosting a Pay it Forward Hiring Drive to put 100 unemployed people to work this holiday season. The goal of this drive is to help give encouragement and purpose to as many job seekers as possible by providing them the opportunity to earn a week's worth of pay and help provide for their families during the holidays.
By joining Express in this hiring effort, employers will gain a qualified worker and give the gift of employment to an individual who would otherwise not be working during the week of Dec. 10-16. Express associates are screened and evaluated before being placed in short- and long-term assignments in a variety of administrative, professional and commercial positions.
"Pay it Forward to us means working with local businesses to help find jobs for unemployed workers in our community, so they can earn a paycheck and help support their families this season," said Rocky Gill. "Our vision is to lock arms with businesses in Tyler to bring hope to local families for the holidays."
This program will provide local businesses with the additional support often needed during a busy time of the year while helping someone provide for their family.
Companies and individuals interested in participating in the Pay it Forward Hiring Drive can call the Tyler office at 903.592.9999 for more information.
