10 Nov Whalls Group Receives 2020 Hire Vets Medallion Award
U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia recognized Whalls Group as one of the 675 recipients of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor. Whalls Group 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 job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
“Whalls Group helps other companies build out their veteran hiring programs, and we practice what we preach.” said Eden Broggi, Head of Talent Acquisition at Whalls Group. “Our veterans bring proven leadership, work ethic and an invaluable sense of teamwork to the Whalls Group.”
Whalls Group 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.
Whalls Group is a premier veteran recruiting and staffing firm. They work across multiple industries and have a track record of success in both high-level corporate build outs, as well as high pressure, high-volume ramps.
