Jovian Concepts Receives 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award from the U.S. Department of Labor
11/11/21 – U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized Jovian Concepts as one of the 849 recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor. Jovian Concepts earned the gold 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 employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
“Jovian Concepts recognizes the need for providing a mentorship program to our veteran employees to alleviate some of the stress that comes with separating from the military,” says Heather Johnson, PMP, Senior Vice President of Jovian Concepts. “We provide leadership, guidance, and resources to help veterans translate what they have learned in the military to the civilian workforce and industry. Our veterans sacrificed everything for us, and this is our way of giving back to those who have served.”
Jovian Concepts joins 848 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 2021 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.
