The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is the only federal-level veterans’ employment award that recognizes a company or organization’s commitment to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development.

LAUNCH President & COO, Jean Rollo, said, “We are committed to hiring veterans at LAUNCH through our Working Heroes program. Our dedicated military recruiting team understands veterans’ unique skill sets and can help those transitioning out of the military find rewarding civilian jobs.”

The company has successfully placed over 1,000 veteran candidates through the Working Heroes program. In addition, LAUNCH has been a Top Ten Military Friendly Employer for four years running.

“The Working Heroes program serves as a way for our clients to tap into this underutilized population of high-quality workers at a time when the current labor market continues to tighten. Our nation’s veterans have leadership experience, discipline and a proven work ethic – excellent characteristics to integrate into our clients’ workforces,” said Mike Guagenti, LAUNCH CEO.
