One of the roadblocks when recruiting somebody is essentially making sure both of you have a job. The Hiring Partners program kicked off in 2015. When a member organization is trying to find a job for a potential employees spouse, the HR manager emails the resume to Yancey. vocationShe then sends it out to a network of businesses. Weve probably sent out about two dozen resumes, she said. And businesses benefit, too. They can work together to help split relocation costs to bring the couple to Idaho, Yancey said. Only a handful of spouses have found positions through Hiring Partners since the program launched last year, but its gaining momentum. Its taking on some traction with a lot of the local employers, said Mark Stevens, director of human resources for St. Lukes Magic Valley. The program isnt about competing with other employers for workers, he said, but is a partnership to help each other.
