Novetta Receives Third Consecutive Hire Vets Award
MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia recognized Novetta as a 2020 HIRE Vets Gold Medallion Award recipient during a ceremony earlier today at the U.S. Department of Labor.
"We are extremely proud to have received a Gold Medallion Award for the third year in a row," said Novetta President, CEO, and U.S. Navy veteran Tiffanny Gates. "It recognizes our commitment to hiring veterans and helping the nearly 33% of our workforce who are veterans develop meaningful, long-term careers."
NovettaVETS, one of several veteran-focused Novetta programs, supports veteran staff as they transition from the military to the civilian workplace. The program provides mentorship and leadership coaching via dedicated human resources personnel, raises internal awareness of veteran concerns, and raises funds to support veteran charities. The annual NovettaVETS Summit, where they reognize and thank veteran employees and raise funds to support veteran charities, was canceled due to the pandemic. However, Novetta still raised over $7,000 for the Fisher House Foundation via a company-wide, virtual trivia challenge.
Novetta participates in the DoD SkillBridge Program and partners with MSSA for Veterans and Hiring our Heroes to further engage and support military personnel seeking opportunities in our industry. To learn more about these programs, visit Novetta's Military Talent page.
