The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), partnering with the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) and Texas Workforce Solutions Offices, recognized the City of West Lake Hills for participating in the “We Hire Vets” employer recognition program for their efforts in hiring our nation’s heroes.
Through this program, employers whose workforce is composed of at least 10 percent military veterans are eligible to receive a “We Hire Vets” employer recognition decal. In addition, this program encourages more Texas employers to hire veterans.
“Veterans bring a level of leadership, integrity and honor to a company that will strengthen any business,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Aaron Demerson. “The City of West Lake Hills has made a commitment to hiring veterans, and it is important that we recognize employers who have veteran-friendly hiring practices.”
Employing veterans creates a dedicated workforce with employees who know how to lead, build teams, and accept and meet challenges. Recognition of employers with veteran-friendly hiring practices is an important aspect of the Texas Operation Welcome Home initiative that assists recently separated veterans with employment and training opportunities.
