CareerSource Research Coast receives 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award from the U.S. Department of Labor

U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized CareerSource Research Coast (CSRC) as one of the 849 recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor. CareerSource Research Coast (CSRC) 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.

“CSRC Veterans’ preference recognizes the economic loss suffered by citizens who have served their country in uniform, restores veterans to a favorable competitive position for employment opportunities, and acknowledges the larger obligation owed to disabled veterans,” said CareerSource Research Coast President and CEO Brian Bauer.

CareerSource Research Coast (CSRC) joins 848 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans and ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired throughout their military service.

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; pay compensation and tuition assistance programs for veterans. More than 1,400 employers have earned a HIRE Vets Medallion Award since 2018.
