TKC Holdings Recognized for Its Commitment to Hiring Veterans

St. Louis-based TKC Holdings, LLC was recently recognized by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA) for its commitment to hiring, training and retaining military veterans. 

The agency awarded TKC a Bronze Level certification as a veteran-friendly employer. TKC had to meet several criteria in order to achieve this distinction: it actively seeks out veteran applicants and encourages them to seek employment with the company; it educates managers and supervisors on the value of hiring veterans, and provides them resources for effectively managing veteran employees; and it continually recognizes and supports veterans and their families in appreciation for their service and sacrifice to our country.

TKC currently employs 80 veterans—one percent of its workforce—representing every branch of service. Jeffrey Koppin, senior director of talent acquisition for TKC, and a United States Marine Corps veteran, explains why the company pursues military veteran job candidates: “We proudly source and employ veterans because the military services are 'learning organizations’—they instill characteristics such as adaptability, leadership, teamwork and strong work ethic, which make veterans great civilian employees. Our business is all about teamwork and collaboration, so tapping into this talent pool aligns very well with our philosophy. Hiring veterans is a logical step for any employer that wants to work smart!”
