SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- US Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia recognized Acronis SCS as one of the 675 recipients of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony at the US Department of Labor. Acronis SCS 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 job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
"Acronis SCS has been a trusted partner for our nation's veterans from day one," says John Zanni, CEO of Acronis SCS. "Our veterans on staff are an integral part of our team, bringing invaluable skill and passion to their roles and strengthening our mission to provide leading cyber protection solutions to the US public sector. We are honored to be recognized by the Department of Labor with this award, and we remain dedicated to being an exemplary veteran employer moving forward."
In earning the award, Acronis SCS joins 674 companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, in demonstrating their patriotism and commitment to the veteran community by ensuring veterans have long-term career and growth plans that build on the diverse skills they acquired through their military service. Acronis SCS has also expanded employment opportunities for veterans outside the company via Acronis SCSVets, a nonprofit it founded last year to provide post-military IT job training and certification to veterans and spouses at zero cost to participants.
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is based on a number of criteria, ranging from veteran hiring and retention to providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources, and compensation and tuition assistance programs – with requirements varying for large, medium, and small employers.
