AUSTIN –The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) announced today that McLane Southwest, Stanley Black & Decker and Texas Mutual Insurance Company are the finalists for the 2019 Texas Workforce Solutions Large Employer of the Year Award. BWJ Metalworks LLC, Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas and Hobbs Bonded Fibers are the finalists for the 2019 Texas Workforce Solutions Small Employer of the Year Award.
TWC also named Adaptive Construction Solutions, Inc. (ACS) as this year’s Veteran Friendly Employer of the Year winner, which honors a private-sector employer whose efforts to recruit and hire veterans have had a significant effect on the local workforce development area and across the state. ACS is a Service-Connected Disabled Veteran-owned and staffed company that strives to recruit, train and place military veterans into skilled trade professions across Texas. ACS currently has 38 full-time employees, of which 27 are veterans.
“We are proud of these Texas businesses for the value they provide their communities by contributing to our thriving economy and job growth, and for their efforts in hiring veterans,” said TWC Chairman and Commissioner Representing the Public Bryan Daniel. “These finalists are leading the way for all employers and TWC is honored to recognize their outstanding efforts and achievements.”

The finalists were chosen from among 61 private-sector employers nominated by local workforce partners for their contributions to the Texas workforce through innovation and collaboration with their local Workforce Solutions Office and their local community.

“Congratulations to all our finalists. They represent a commitment to the Texas Workforce and our Veterans through their ongoing development and training efforts,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Labor Julian Alvarez. “Our highly-skilled workforce benefits from having such strong support from local employers.”

These employers exemplify TWC’s mission to promote and support a workforce system that creates value and offers employers, individuals and communities the opportunity to achieve and sustain economic prosperity.

“We are honored to recognize these top-notch employers for both their contributions and investments to our first-class Texas workforce,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employer Aaron Demerson. “This year’s Employer of the Year Award honors those Texas employers who show great commitment to their employees and their respective local communities.”

The 2019 Employer of the Year winners will be announced at the 23rd Annual Texas Workforce Conference Employer Award luncheon, which will take place at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center on Wednesday, December 4.

Also being honored at the luncheon are 28 Local Employer of Excellence award recipients who will be recognized for their involvement with the Texas workforce system and the positive contributions they have made to employers, workers and their communities.
