On November 10th, the U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized TP Trucking, for the second year in a row, as one of 849 recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony at the 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 job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans. TP Trucking earned the Platinum Award this year, a grade above last.
As always, TP Trucking worked diligently this year to recruit veterans. They partner with several agencies in Oregon and across the country. This includes the HIRE Vets Medallion Program, Hire Our Vets Programs and Veterans Administration in White City, Ore.
“Hiring Veterans is a vital part of our continued growth at TP Trucking and TP Logistics. We have always recognized the value and skill U.S. Veterans bring to the transportation industry and civilian workforce in general,” said Joe Anderson, HR Recruiter for TP Trucking.
Recipients of the HIRE Vets Medallion Award must meet rigorous employment and veteran integration assistance criteria, including veteran hiring and retention percentages; availability of veteran-specific resources; leadership programming; dedicated human resource efforts; pay compensation and tuition assistance programs.
The TP Trucking team is once again grateful to receive recognition with the Platinum Award from HIRE Vets.
Congratulations to TP Trucking!
