Salute is proud to announce, again this year, that we’ve been recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a 2019 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award recipient for our commitment to recruiting, employing, retraining and retaining America’s veterans. From the start, our mission has been to address veteran unemployment and now under employment by providing a pathway to data center jobs, while simultaneously helping to solve skilled personnel shortages in the industry. “We are honored to be recognized again this year for our efforts and the results we’ve achieved,” says Salute’s Chairman, Lee Kirby, “having put more than 1,500 veterans into family-sustaining jobs since 2013.”
Salute joins the recipients of the 2019 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award ranging from small businesses and community-based non-profits to leading Fortune 500 companies throughout the United States and its territories. Recipients of the 2019 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 7, 2019 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.
