North America Mattress Corp. has been Awarded the 2018, 2019 & 2020 Gold HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award by the United States Department of Labor.
What is the HIRE Vets Medallion Program?
The HIRE Vets Medallion Program recognizes employers for their efforts to recruit, employ, and retain our Nation’s veterans. President Donald J. Trump signed the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans (HIRE Vets) Act of 2017 into law in May 2017. The Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) administers the HIRE Vets Medallion Program.
The U.S. Department of Labor today announced recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award, recognizing job creators for their leadership in recruiting, employing, and retaining America’s veterans. Honorees include small businesses, community-based nonprofits, and national companies.
“America’s veterans are proven leaders who bring skills, dedication, and determination to our nation’s workforce,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta.” To earn a HIRE Vets Medallion Award, job creators must demonstrate a solid commitment to providing veterans with the opportunity to build a meaningful career. This program recognizes a standard for excellence in veterans hiring, and helps veterans identify employers who are committed to advancing veterans in the workplace.”
Recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award were evaluated based on a range of criteria, including:
- Veteran hiring and retention
- Availability of veteran-specific resources
- Leadership programming for veterans
- Dedicated human resources
- Compensation and tuition assistance programs for veterans
