U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized MITRE’s efforts to hire and support veterans with the 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Award. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program that honors employers who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans while also ensuring they have a long-term career growth plan. 

The Department of Labor requires recipients of the HIRE Vets Medallion Award to meet rigorous employment and veteran integration assistance criteria. Companies must meet veteran hiring and retention percentages, provide veteran-specific resources, offer leadership training for veterans, and provide tuition assistance programs for veterans.
