SAN ANTONIO, DECEMBER 20, 2023 – The Intellekt Group has been awarded the Gold Hire Vets Medallion Award for 2023. This recognition underscores our company’s commitment to supporting and employing veterans. The Hire Vets Medallion Program, established under the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017 (HIRE Vets Act), is a distinguished federal-level initiative aimed at acknowledging organizations that prioritize veteran employment and contribute to the professional growth of veterans in the workforce.
The HIRE Vets Act, found in Division O of Public Law 115-31, is legislation that emphasizes the importance of American military veterans in the civilian workforce. It encourages employers to prioritize the recruitment, employment, and retention of veterans, ensuring they have the support and opportunities needed for successful transitions to civilian careers.
The Hire Vets Medallion Program is a key component of the HIRE Vets Act, and it serves as the sole veteran employment award at the federal level. This program distinguishes companies that demonstrate exceptional commitment to hiring and retaining veterans.
The Intellekt Group’s Gold achievement for 2023 reflects our commitment to empowering veterans. We actively seek to leverage their unique skills, experiences, and perspectives to enhance the workplace.
