Samsung Austin Semiconductor Honored as 'We Hire Vets' Employer for its Commitment to Empowering Texas Veterans

Please join us in congratulating our partners at Samsung Austin Semiconductor on being recognized by the Texas Workforce Commission & Texas Veterans Commission as a “We Hire Vets” employer for maintaining a workforce comprised of 17 percent military veterans. 

Thank you, Samsung, for empowering heroes throughout Central Texas.

The We Hire Vets program recognizes Texas employers' commitment to hiring veterans.

Launched in 2017, “We Hire Vets” is an employer recognition program developed by TWC to recognize Texas employers for their commitment to hiring veterans. 

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. 

“We Hire Vets” is a component of TWC’s Texas Operation Welcome Home initiative:

“Veterans bring a level of leadership, integrity, and honor to a company that will strengthen any business,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Aaron Demerson. “Samsung Austin Semiconductor has made a strong commitment to hiring veterans, and it's important that we recognize Texas employers who have veteran-friendly hiring practices.”

Employing veterans creates a dedicated workforce with employees who know firsthand 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.
