Salute is proud to announce that we've been recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a 2018 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award recipient for our commitment to recruiting, employing, and retaining America’s veterans.

From the start, our mission has been to address veteran unemployment by providing a pathway to data center jobs, while simultaneously helping to solve skilled personnel shortages in the industry. “As a Gold award recipient, we are honored to be recognized for our efforts and the results we’ve achieved,” says Salute’s Chairman, Lee Kirby, “having placed more than 1,000 veterans in family-sustaining jobs since 2013.”

Salute joins 239 recipients of the 2018 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award ranging from small businesses and community-based non-profits to leading Fortune 500 companies from 42 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Recipients of the 2018 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award demonstrated a commitment to veteran hiring and retention, and provided veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources, and compensation and tuition assistance programs.

Salute is a Gold award recipient, recognized on November 8, 2018 in an award ceremony held at the U.S. Department of Labor. The HIRE Vets Medallion Program is the only federal-level award that recognizes job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain America’s veterans.
