HIRE Vets Medallion
Goldbelt Companies Awarded Prestigious Platinum HIRE Vets Medallion Awards From U.S. Department of Labor
Seven Goldbelt companies were recognized by U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta as recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor on November 10.
Congratulations to Goldbelt Falcon, LLC, Nisga'a Tek, LLC, Peregrine Technical Solutions, LLC, Goldbelt Hawk, LLC, Nisga'a Data Systems, LLC, Goldbelt Glacier Health Services, LLC, and Goldbelt Frontier, LLC. Each company earned a Platinum Award in the program. The Platinum Award is the highest level awarded. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
"Goldbelt proudly employs veterans across all our companies," said McHugh Pierre, Goldbelt's President and CEO. "After dedicating years of their lives to serving our country, these men and women–some of our best and brightest–are ready to utilize their existing skills and grow new ones in the civilian arena. Goldbelt is honored to be a chosen company for many of these veterans, and we work hard to ensure that they thrive within Goldbelt's ranks. We appreciate being recognized by Secretary Acosta and the Department of Labor for our efforts in attracting and retaining excellent veteran employees."
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is based on 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.
