April 15, 2019—Participants in ASA’s upcoming annual business meeting and conference will get the opportunity to hear from a senior U.S. Department of Labor official about the merits of its agency’s HIRE Vets Medallion Award Program. It is the only federal veterans’ employment award that recognizes employers’ commitment to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development–and it carries the full weight of the federal government.

The deadline is April 30, 2019 and ASA is encouraging all of its member-shops to submit an application. The award provides many advantages for employers of all sizes:

  • For small businesses, the well-defined award criteria may make the award harder to earn than other existing veteran employer awards, which means it’s a more elite designation.

  • For medium-sized shops, the HIRE Vets Medallion Award helps companies stand out in a crowded market full of veteran awards, as it is the federal standard. The award is a clear signal that the company is veteran friendly.

  • For MSOs, The HIRE Vets Medallion is the ultimate mark of corporate stewardship when it comes to building veteran careers. The award gives large companies a competitive hiring advantage as it shows their commitment to matching the company’s needs with veterans’ qualifications.

  • All employer segments may gain further benefits from receiving the HIRE Vets Medallion, as veteran-owned businesses and employers in military communities may experience additional pride and praise by earning the medallion.

  • Employers applying for a HIRE Vets Medallion are reaping a competitive advantage; this award enables them to maximize the return on their investment in the veteran programs they offer.
