Itero Group Receives 2023 Hire Vets Medallion Award from the U.S. Department of Labor

U.S. Acting Secretary of Labor Julie A. Su recognized Itero Group as one of the 859 recipients of the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor. Itero Group 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.


“At Itero Group, we are committed to honoring the dedication and sacrifice of our veterans,” said CEO Erin McKenzie-Brahms. “One of our guiding principles is the belief that veterans add value to our organization, and we take immense pride in the fact that in the past few months, we have increased our veteran staff by 60%. This achievement demonstrates our unwavering dedication to empowering veterans and providing them with meaningful employment.”


Itero Group joins 858 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 2023 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 1,600 employers have earned a HIRE Vets Medallion Award since 2018.
