Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The U.S Department of Labor recognized twelve Goldbelt companies as recipients of the Hiring Investments in Recruiting and Employing (HIRE) Vets platinum medallions.
The HIRE Vets Act Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
The companies selected to receive the HIRE Vets Medallion Award have ensured their veteran employees have a long-term career and growth plan that utilizes their diverse skills acquired through military service.
It's awarded based on criteria ranging from veteran hiring and retention to providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, human resources, and compensation and tuition assistance programs.
The requirements vary for large, medium, and small employers.
McHugh Pierre, Goldbelt's President & CEO gave a statement.
"Our Veterans learned critical skills through dedicated years of service to our country. We honor and value those experiences and help Veterans put those skills to work in the civilian world through rich and fulfilling missions serving our community and country at Goldbelt. This year, twelve of our companies earned medallions, five more companies than in 2021.
