OAKLEAF – A local company that uses a team of experts and engineers who work with federal agencies in finding and implementing the useful technologies was honored last week with the Gold Level Award by the U.S. Department of Labor.
NexTech Solutions, 4265 Eagle Landing Pkwy., Orange Park, was one of 20 Florida businesses to earn the HIRE Vets Medallion Award for recruiting, employing and retaining America’s veterans. The nationwide award recipients hired more than 52,000 veterans since 2017.
The awards were presented at a ceremony hosted by Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia at the Department’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Job creators from Florida were recognized for their commitment to veterans and their families.
“The recipients of the 2019 HIRE Vets Medallion Awards demonstrated a commitment to hiring veterans and helping them to develop meaningful, long-term careers,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “From small-town businesses to Fortune 500 companies, these employers understand that veterans are uniquely qualified and dedicated employees who make significant contributions in the workplace.”
