US Army, Everi enter recruiting agreement

March 11, 2022

Partnership aims to ease transition to civilian life.

Everi Holdings and the United States Army have entered an agreement which will see the gaming provider join the Army’s Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program. While it may seem like an unlikely partnership, the program is of vital importance as people leave the service and enter civilian life. 

Furthermore, the skills one learns in the Army can be of great use in many sectors, gaming being one of them. 

The PaYS Program partners the Army with a cross section of companies, corporations, and public agencies to help the soon-to-be veterans obtain jobs. The idea is that American soldiers can serve their country while, at the same time, preparing for life after. 

In partnering with the Army, the Las Vegas-based Everi will be able to guarantee interviews and potential employment.  

Partners in the program also mentor soldiers through their transition to civilian life. Such a program is in keeping with the Army’s emphasis on helping its veterans succeed down the line. More even than the sister services, the Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard put much stock in facilitating recruitment with entities both public and private. 

Everi President and COO Randy Taylor commented on how the model soldier could make for a model employee too: “Everi is proud to celebrate this new initiative with the US Army. It allows us to identify and connect with a talented pool of individuals with discipline, focus, and a strong work ethic cultivated while in the service.” 

Taylor also noted the transference of skills between the Army and the gaming industry: “As a company that has a strong focus in the technology industry, with job availability across our games and fintech business segments, we are eager to engage with veterans who possess a variety of skillsets. This is a win-win engagement for us both; we couldn’t be more proud to work with the US Army and those who have served our country.”
