“The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce applauds HMSHost for its commitment to L.A. youth and developing the workforce of our region,” says Gary Toebben, president & CEO, Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. “Hiring more than half of the 70 youth it has employed through the Hire L.A.’s Youth program for full-time positions, HMSHost is clearly showing the benefits of the program for both youth and employers."
Teens from Hire L.A.’s Youth program joined HMSHost in full-time jobs as baristas, cashiers, hosts and hostesses, line cooks, production cooks, and shift leads.
“Participation in Hire L.A.’s Youth has been a significant resource to us in our local hiring efforts," says Steve Johnson, HMSHost’s senior vice president of business development at Los Angeles Airport. "We know a positive work experience early on contributes to success throughout life, and we’re pleased to be a part of this program.”
