SAN FRANCISCO, June 8, 2022 (Newswire.com)
Instawork, the leading platform for connecting businesses with skilled hourly workers, announced today its partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes (HOH), an organization that connects the military community – transitioning service members, military spouses, and veterans – with American businesses to create economic opportunity and a strong and diversified workforce.
According to Hiring Our Heroes, the support of organizations like Instawork allows them to connect tens of thousands of people each year with employment opportunities. More than 41,000 military community members were served by HOH in 2021.
For over a decade, HOH has used hiring events, digital programs, and internships, to cultivate a rich pipeline of military talent ready for the American business community. Instawork plans to connect HOH’s established network with hourly work opportunities on the digital marketplace and salaried positions with Instawork corporate.
HOH reports that 25% of military spouses have taken advantage of self-employment at some point in their career and one-third of military spouses live away from their partner to seize career opportunities. The nation’s 980,000 military spouses can now take advantage of the flexible work opportunities offered by Instawork, allowing them to support the needs of their families while achieving personal financial goals.
“Due to the nature of our flexible work platform, Instawork is uniquely positioned to support those who have served our country and their family members,” said Kira Caban, Instawork’s Head of Communications. “In particular, military spouses will benefit from the ability to create a work schedule around caregiving responsibilities, choosing when they work, how they work, and where they work. If they frequently relocate to other parts of the country, they can take Instawork with them, eliminating the gap in income that often comes with relocation.”
