Veterans Day Recognition
Of the 849 employers nationwide who received a HIRE (Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military) Veterans Act Vets Medallion Award from the U.S. Department of Labor, one was Treasure Island. According to a Nov. 10 press release from the City of Treasure Island, Treasure Island applied for the award in early 2021 and was selected and virtually awarded the accolade by U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh. The award is given to employers who recruit and retain veterans, while allowing them to utilize their skills learned in the military in their profession. This award provides resources, programs, tuition-assistance and more for recipients. Learn more about Treasure Island.
