Texas Workforce Commission Announces Texas Operation Welcome and We Hire Vets Web Portal

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) recently launched its Texas Operation Welcome Home web portal to better meet the employment needs of transitioning service members, recently separated veterans and military spouses. The portal includes information and web links to several employment and training initiatives for veterans and employers.

“The service members transitioning back to the civilian workforce and our Texas veterans are an extremely valuable source of talent for Texas employers,” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar. “We are proud to provide information and resources to Texas veterans seeking opportunities in industries across Texas, as well as to the employers who benefit from their unmatched leadership and skills.”

The web portal includes online registration for the “We Hire Vets” employer recognition program that recognizes Texas employers for their commitment to hiring veterans. Through the program, employers whose workforce is composed of at least 10 percent military veterans are eligible to receive a “We Hire Vets” employer recognition decal to display on the employer’s storefront as well as an electronic decal to display on the employer’s website.
