November 10, 2022 – U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized NexTech Solutions as one of the 835 recipients of the 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by the U.S. Department of Labor. NTS was recently recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Platinum Award recipient for our commitment to recruiting, employing, and retaining veterans. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.

“Our company sees tremendous value in hiring veterans,” said Ranae Laidig, NTS Director of Human Resources. “Aside from the obvious advantages many veterans have in their understanding of how governmental organizations get the job done, we deeply value those with a service mentality. At NTS, we have come to appreciate the value that veterans bring, such as proven leadership, leadership readiness, having a mission-focused approach to work, as well as experience working within diverse teams and organizations. Additionally, they have proved to be adaptable and are immediate contributors, as well as possessing strong work ethics which lends itself very well to our mission as well as that of our customers.”

NTS joins 834 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans, but also ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired through their military service. Recipients of the 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Award meet rigorous employment and veteran integration assistance criteria, including veteran hiring and retention percentages; availability of veteran-specific resources; leadership programming for veterans; dedicated human resource efforts; pay compensation and tuition assistance programs for veterans. More than 1,400 employers have earned a HIRE Vets Medallion Award since 2018.
