The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes companies for their efforts in supporting veteran jobs. The award was granted 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.
“It’s Black Knight’s privilege to support members of the military and their spouses with rewarding careers and opportunities for growth,” said Melissa Circelli, Chief Human Resources Officer, Black Knight. “We are proud to hire and employ service members and military spouses, which allows us to utilize their valuable skills and experience each day at Black Knight, as well as show our appreciation for their sacrifices, bravery and dedication in serving our country.”
Black Knight was one of 675 recipients from across the nation to receive this recognition from the U.S. Department of Labor. The companies that received this award showed commitment to not only hiring veterans, but also ensuring they have a long-term career path that uses the diverse skills they acquired throughout their military service.
Black Knight has also been recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense through its Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) status and support of its Military Spouse Employment Partnership. As a proud supporter of the military, veterans and their families, Black Knight is also one of the underwriting corporate sponsors for The Folded Flag Foundation, a non-profit that provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of fallen service members. In addition, Circelli serves on the board of Operation New Uniform, a service organization that helps equip veterans with the tools and preparation needed to translate their military service into a rewarding career.
