Hillsboro EDC Recognized By Workforce

The Hillsboro Economic Development Corporation (HEDC) was recently recognized as “Partner of the Year” by the Workforce Solutions for the Heart of Texas.

HEDC received the award for having partnered with Workforce over the past several years, and over the past two years that partnership has grown stronger.

According to Workforce officials, the partnership has aided Workforce Solutions in fulfilling its mission and has helped the corporation to fulfill its primary purpose of industrial recruitment and retention.

The HEDC has provided the workforce system with increased opportunities for more flexibility, resources, and networks that impact the economic well-being of the Hillsboro community. 

This past year, the Hillsboro EDC partnered with Workforce Solutions to host a Hill County Job Fair. 

The event began with the goal of linking job seekers in Hill County with employers from surrounding business communities.

As a result, fifteen hiring employers were connected to 40 job seekers and three job seekers were hired on the spot. 

The HEDC is also an advocate for Workforce Solutions services and has referred many new and existing companies to our Business Solutions team for assistance. 

Workforce Solutions for the Heart of Texas is involved with and informed about our area’s business community because of its relationship with the Hillsboro Economic Development Corporation.

The honor was presented at the Workforce Solutions annual awards banquet held at the Phoenix Ballroom in Waco.
