Tacoma business owner Les Kaciban will be celebrated tomorrow afternoon by leaders of WorkSource Pierce for his stellar record in providing job opportunities for military veterans.

Paragon Systems Inc., a local affiliate of a national firm that provides comprehensive facility security services to departments and agencies of the federal government, has 145 professionals on the job in the Puget Sound area. And 89 percent of them are veterans, including six hired already in 2017 and 57 vets who joined the firm in 2016.

The state Employment Security Department partners with its corresponding Veterans Affairs and Commerce state agencies to join local chambers of commerce in the “Yes Vets” program. You can learn more about the productive source for new-hire employees with military service backgrounds at this website.
