Cedar Rapids, Iowa – November 9, 2022 – U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized Circle Computer Resources as one of the 835 recipients of the 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor.

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.

“The Hire Vets Medallion award is a honor to be a part of, as well as a great way for Veterans to know how much we support them in finding the right opportunity,” said Heidi Hromidko, VP of Human Experience. “At CCR we pride ourselves in finding great candidates by partnering with local entities that focus on Veterans in the workforce as well as taking opportunities to learn more about the training Veterans receive within their military career.”

Circle Computer Resources joins 834 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans, but also ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired through their military service.

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.
