The Rockhill Group, Inc. (TRG) is proud to be recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Labor, Mr. Eugene Scalia, as one of the 675 recipients of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor. TRG earned the GOLD Award after applying earlier this year. 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.
By earning the GOLD award, TRG joins 674 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans. Additionally, these 674 companies also ensure that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills veterans acquired through their military service.
“As a 21-year retired vet, I am very proud of this achievement and supporting our veterans and warfighters,” said TRG President and CEO James “Rock” Rockhill. “TRG has always placed an emphasis on employing and providing career growth for veterans. This is proven in that 88 percent of TRG’s workforce is composed of veterans.”
TRG is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business that provides specialized and professional services to the Federal Government, including Department of Defense (DoD) agencies. Over the last 16 years, TRG has employed and retained an extremely high percentage of veterans. TRG provides specialized services that require experienced veterans with the professional skills necessary to train active duty personnel through academic instruction, simulator training, role-playing, and live-fly on-the-job training missions, as well as provide support services for a wide variety of DoD-related activities.
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is based on a number of criteria, ranging from veteran hiring and retention to providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources, and compensation and tuition assistance programs–with requirements varying for large, medium, and small employers.
