Honoring the Employers who Hire our Nation’s Heroes

The HIRE Vets Medallion Program will soon accept applications for the HIRE Vets Medallion Award, the only federal-level veterans’ employment award that recognizes a company or organization’s commitment to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development. There are three company sizes for application:

  • Small Employer (1-50 Employees)
  • Medium Employer (51-499 Employees)
  • Large Employer (500+ Employees)

There are two medals companies can receive: Platinum and Gold. Learn more about the award criteria, the benefits of the program, and how employers can apply at
This is a great opportunity for companies to show their commitment to hire and retain veterans. It also solidifies and highlights partners in our shared endeavor to hire veterans.
