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.
