Metis is proud to announce the award of the HIRE Vets Platinum Medallion for a medium-sized company. Metis is one of only 58 companies across the United States to receive a HIRE VETS award three years in a row and every year since its inception. Metis takes great pride in its veteran workforce.
“As a retired veteran, this award is close to my heart. Our veterans bring something special to our organization fostering teamwork, professionalism, and leadership,” said Jennifer Paulik, Metis Executive Director of Human Resources. “I take great pride in helping veterans move on to the next chapter of their lives and support their success.”
Metis was honored for having multiple initiatives that attract, retain, and benefit veterans. The company has hired veterans with wartime service ranging from the Vietnam war up to the most recent Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan). Veterans programs developed by Metis include a Veteran Information Group, a Veteran Leadership, and Mentorship Program and additional education reimbursement dollars for Veterans taking courses that support career growth and qualifications for management and leadership positions.
