The Village of Hanover Park Receives the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award
Hanover Park, IL - The U.S. Department of Labor presented the Village of Hanover Park with the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award in recognition of its employment of military veterans. This award is part of the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017 (HIRE Vets Act).
The Village received a Gold level award in the medium sized employer (51-499 employees) category. To achieve Gold status, at least 7% of employees must be military veterans, with 75% employed for 12 months. The Village exceeds these criteria, with nearly 11% of its workforce made up of veterans, with the majority being employed with the Village for more than 10 years.
“The Village of Hanover Park values the skills which each of our American veterans bring to our workplace---these include leadership, teamwork, and integrity,” said Human Resources Director Barry Kurcz. “We are extremely proud of our veterans and this award recognizes the Village of Hanover Park’s commitment to maintain our exceptional standard in hiring and advancing veterans in our workplace. We proudly support these heroes for their dedication and service to our great country” said Village President Rodney Craig.
