The program is the only federal-level award that recognizes job creators who successfully recruit, hire, and retain America’s veterans. The award was presented during a ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor. Recipients of the award range from small businesses and nonprofits to Fortune 500 companies from 42 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. 

The HIRE Vets Medallion Program recognizes organizations that demonstrate leadership in the recruitment and employment of our nation’s veterans. SupplyCore president & CEO, Peter Provenzano, actively supports these initiatives.

“At SupplyCore, we recognize the value and skills that veterans bring to an organization,” said Provenzano. “Eleven percent of our associates are veterans, and we are a stronger company because of it.
