Bristol, Pa. — November 8, 2023 – Just two days ahead of Veterans Day, the U.S. Acting Secretary of Labor Julie A. Su recognized DVL Group, Inc. as one of the 859 recipients of the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor. DVL, which is an employee owned company, 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.
"DVL has always valued hiring and retaining vets, so we are very honored to be recognized and join this group of employers,” commented Christy Magee, DVL’s Senior Director of Human Resources. “Furthermore, we hope that this honor helps us attract even more of the 200,000 service members that transition from the Military into civilian life each year.”
DVL joins 858 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 2023 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 1,600 employers have earned a HIRE Vets Medallion Award since 2018.
