Gannon & Scott Receives 2020 Hire Vets Medallion Award from U.S. Dept. of Labor.
CRANSTON, RI & PHOENIX, AZ (November 11, 2020) – U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia recognized Gannon & Scott as one of the 675 recipients of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor. Gannon & Scott 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.
“We are steadfast in our support of our Veterans and are pleased to receive the HIRE VETS Medallion Award once again,” said Gannon & Scott President and U.S. Army veteran Chris Jones.
In 2019, Gannon & Scott was the first precious metals refiner to receive the award. They join 674 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia. Gannon & Scott has shown a commitment to hiring veterans and ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills Veterans have acquired through their military service.
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is earned on several 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.
