For the fourth straight year, Metis Technology Solutions has been awarded a HIRE Vets Medallion by the U.S. Department of Labor. The HIRE Vets Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans. Metis is one of only 849 total recipients of the award nationwide, and this year the company earned its second Gold Medallion Award.
“Metis is honored to be recognized by the Department of Labor with a HIRE Vets Medallion for the fourth consecutive year,” said Joy Colucci, Chief Executive Officer of Metis. “But, even more so, we are honored that so many men and women who have served our country have also chosen Metis as their place of employment. The entire organization benefits from their discipline, courage, and unique skillsets.”
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; as well as pay compensation and tuition assistance programs for veterans. Specifically, Metis offers multiple initiatives which benefit veteran employees, including a Veteran Information Group, a Veteran Leadership Program, and additional education reimbursement dollars to support veterans in their career development and growth.
