Do You Hire Veterans? Apply For The DOL’s VETS Medallion Program
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award Program is now accepting applications!
The Department of Labor’s HIRE Vets Medallion Award is the only federal-level veteran’s employment award that recognizes employers for their investments in recruiting, employing, and retaining our nation’s veterans. This award is an opportunity to highlight your organization’s work to support America’s veterans.
The award is based on a number of criteria, ranging from veteran hiring and retention to providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources, and compensation and tuition assistance programs – with requirements varying for large, medium, and small employers.
Applications are now open and will run through April 30, 2020.
The Department of Labor has launched the Hire VETS Medallion Program. This is the only federal award that recognizes employers of all sizes who excel at hiring and retaining veterans. A Medallion Award employer can use a “digital” Medallion for their website and advertising.
The Medallion shows customers, the public, business partners, and potential employees that your business is dedicated to and a leader in employing our nation’s veterans.
A list of Medallion Award recipients will be published each year setting your business apart from your peers.
- Top quality veterans will seek employment and help your business grow
- Customers will be attracted to your business
- Business partners may seek to emulate your success
