We have created an enterprise-wide approach to embracing the military – specifically military families. Encompassing six pillars, our effort starts with hiring veterans, military spouses and caregivers by providing portable jobs or careers while also offering flexibility and advancement opportunities. Putting people first is embedded in our culture, and those who have a passion for people and service fall in line with two very important core values of the La Quinta employee ethos. We also source from veteran-owned businesses, and have a special program for veterans interested in becoming La Quinta franchisees.
