We Hire Vets
TDLR is a proud member of the We Hire Vets employer recognition program, which identifies Texas employers whose workforce consists of at least 10% military veterans.
The agency has received this honor each year since 2018. Currently, 12% percent of TDLR’s staff are U.S. military veterans, representing all branches of service.
The program is a component of the Texas Operation Welcome Home initiative to identify gaps in services to Texas service members transitioning into civilian life. Read more about TDLR’s outreach to military service members, veterans, and spouses.
