UUSA is honored to announce that the U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized our company as one of the recipients of the 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony on Wednesday, November 9.
UUSA joins 834 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 2022 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.
Over a third of UUSA’s workforce is made up of individuals who previously served our nation in the U.S. Armed Forces.
“I am proud to work for a company that recognizes the unique talents and skillsets that veterans bring to our organization,” stated Karen Fili, UUSA’s President and CEO. “Their dedication, ownership, accountability, and expertise enriches our culture – receiving this elite award tells me that we’re honoring our veterans the same way they’ve honored us with their service.”
