High Order Solutions Vice President-Operations, Brian McClung accepting The American Legion National Award for Outstanding Small Employer of Veterans Award from Bill West, Department of Texas Adjutant
High Order Solutions, LLC. (HOS) is a veteran owned and veteran-focused business in Frisco that provides business solutions for all industries. Their focus recently earned the 2019 American Legion National Award for Outstanding Small Employer of Veterans. The award was presented to Brian McClung, HOS-VP-Operations, by Bill West, the Department of Texas Adjutant. HOS also won the Department of Texas award.
Brian McClung said “HOS is honored to have been selected. We make every effort to recruit, employ, and retain our nation’s veterans. These American Legion awards recognize the value veterans bring to the workplace.”
HOS assists its veterans by providing free training, internships, and job placement services, as well as assistance for veteran-owned start-up and existing businesses. Part of the HOS mission is to mentor veterans on in-demand technical skills so they can find meaningful work and ‘continue the mission’ of giving back to their community and country.
The American Legion Employer of Veterans Award program has several participant requirements: 1) at least 10% of workforce must be veterans, 2) been in business for the last 5 years, 3) cannot restrict employment to just veterans, and 4) must be a private sector employer. Currently, veterans and other family members represent approximately 50% of the HOS workforce.
HOS coordinates closely with the local Texas Veterans Commission to post job opportunities as well as provide training class information for veterans. Tracy Griffard, the Veteran Employer Liaison for McKinney, Frisco, Allen, and Prosper, nominated HOS for the award.
HOS is also involved with the EOD (Explosive Ordnance Device) Warrior Foundation (EODWF), a non-profit that supports the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to wounded EOD veterans and their families. HOS is also a 2019 winner of a ‘Hire Vets Medallion Award’ for hiring unemployed and transitioning veterans.
HOS is expanding its veteran’s mission by creating a dedicated, non-profit entity, VetsDesk, which will make available even more resources for retraining and job placement.
“A large majority of our highly trained and professional staff comes from the toughest stock there is…the U.S. Military.” said Brian McClung. Fred Rogers, Commander of the American Legion Post 178 in Frisco, replied, “I couldn’t agree more!”
