Yes, it is indeed fantastic news! The Benton-Franklin Workforce Development Council congratulates Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) for being recognized as a WorkSource Columbia Basin YesVets Award recipient. It's great to see WRPS actively utilizing WorkSource as a valuable resource for veteran recruitment.
Moreover, WRPS has shown its dedication to giving back to the veteran community by organizing the Veteran Resume Workshop, which takes place at WorkSource every 2nd Wednesday of the month. Additionally, they provide veteran mock interviews, helping veterans improve their job search skills.
It's commendable that veterans constitute 13.4% of the WRPS workforce, and WRPS aims to continue recruiting and retaining former service members, recognizing the value they bring to the organization.
Congratulations to WRPS on this well-deserved recognition and their ongoing efforts to support veterans in their workforce. The #YesVets #Award #WRPS highlights the positive impact of their initiatives.
