WOMAN OWNED SMALL BUSINESS RECEIVES THE ONLY FEDERAL AWARD FOR VETERAN HIRING PRACTICES IN VIRTUAL CEREMONY


WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized Assertive Professionals, a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned and Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business, as one of the recipients of the 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor. 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.

"I'm incredibly proud of our team for receiving this award for the third consecutive year. As a Veteran myself with two combat deployments, I know firsthand, returning to civilian life poses many challenges for the men and women who have served in the armed forces. As a Veteran employer, we prioritize creating opportunities, resources, mentorship, and benefits that ease the difficulty of building a career outside of the service."

-     Tiffany Shaffery
Founder and CEO

Recipients of the 2022 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.
