HOUSTON, Texas - - Nov 11, 2021- - U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized Janissary as one of the 849 recipients of the 2021 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.

“We founded this company on the principles and core values we learned from our time in the military,” said Nathan Yalcin, Managing Director of Janissary and a veteran of the U.S. Army. “The majority of our board, leadership team, and workforce are veterans, so of course we’ll go above and beyond to support our brothers and sisters in arms.” Janissary joins 848 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 2021 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.
