Utah Patriot Partnership

Governor Herbert and the Utah Department of Workforce Services invite you to join other businesses in  supporting the ‘Utah Patriot Partnership’ program … a program that encourages Utah businesses to hire Veterans as a first choice.

All across Utah, Veterans of our armed services have returned home after serving courageously on the world’s battlefields.  Utah businesses can give these veterans the ultimate ‘thank you’ by allowing them the opportunity for employment.

As true patriots, we all acknowledge the great burdens and sacrifices the members of our Armed Forces have made in order to preserve our national security.  Moreover, many businesses have come to recognize how Veterans and members of our National Guard and Reserve possess the degree of training, education, motivation, and character that will prove vital to Utah’s economic future.  We encourage you to consider what our Veterans have endured for each of us as well as the benefits to your business when you look first to Veterans when hiring.

Accordingly, Governor Herbert is calling on employers to pledge their support to our returning heroes and consider hiring a Utah Veteran whenever a job opening arises – do it for them and for your business. 
The Utah Patriot Partnership recognizes those employers that are willing to make the Pledge of Support to hire Veterans returning from the world’s battlefields.   A certificate from the Governor and other means of recognition will be forwarded to Patriotic employers making their pledge of support.

You can find Veterans by accessing Utah’s online Job Connection service.  Veterans are identified by a U.S. Flag at the top of their resume.  Also, your local Veterans’ Representative employment counselor from the Department of Workforce Services is available to discuss how we can assist you in finding qualified Veterans.
