NTS Receives 2020 HIRE VETS Medallion Award From U.S. Department Of Labor

November 10, 2020 – U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia recognized NTS as one of the 675 recipients of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor. NTS earned the PLATINUM Award after applying earlier this year. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.

“We are dedicated to hiring our nations Veterans because we honor the service of our Veterans and consider it a privilege to be a part of their journey as they transition into a successful career outside of the armed forces. Our Veterans bring proven leadership and technical skills. They understand teamwork, they’re adaptable and come from a place of inclusion and diversity. We prioritize veteran hiring and development because we know that they are dedicated problem solvers and strive to be pivotal team members,” said Ranae Laidig, NTS HR Manager.

NTS joins 674 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.

The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is based on a number of criteria, ranging from veteran hiring and retention to providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources, and compensation and tuition assistance programs – with requirements varying for large, medium, and small employers.
