U.S. Acting Secretary of Labor Julie A. Su recognized MartinFed as one of the 859 recipients of the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor. MartinFed earned the Platinum 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 are deeply honored to receive the Platinum HIRE Vets Medallion award. At MartinFed, veteran hiring isn’t just a commitment; it’s a part of our identity.” said David Mathis, MartinFed President & CEO, “To us, it’s not only about what veterans bring to our team; it’s about what we can offer them in return: a place to thrive, grow, and continue to provide for the safety and security of our nation. This recognition highlights our dedication to empowering veterans in their post-service careers.”
MartinFed joins 858 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who 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 2023 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.
