WASHINGTON, November 12, 2021 (Newswire.com) - U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized IUI as one of the 849 recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor. IUI earned the gold award after applying earlier this year. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
"We applied to HIRE Vets to bring greater recognition and advancement of the hiring of veterans in the commercial sector," said IUI's President Herschel Chandler. "The values and experience veterans learned through military service are an invaluable asset to IUI's culture."
IUI joins 848 other companies from 49 states and the District of Columbia that have shown a commitment to hiring veterans, but also ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired through their military service.
Recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award meet rigorous employment and veteran integration assistance criteria, including veteran hiring and retention percentages; availability of veteran-specific resources; leadership programming for veterans; dedicated human resource efforts; pay compensation and tuition assistance programs for veterans. More than 1,400 employers have earned a HIRE Vets Medallion Award since 2018.
