Black Knight Honored With 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award for Successfully Recruiting and Employing U.S. Veterans
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Nov. 11, 2021 – Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI), a leading provider of integrated software, data and analytics to the mortgage and real estate industries, announced it has received the U.S. Department of Labor’s 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award for its dedication to successfully recruiting and employing U.S. veterans. This is the second consecutive year Black Knight has received this prestigious recognition.
As the only federal award program recognizing companies for their support of veterans, the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program credits a select group of organizations that provide opportunities for those who have served and protected our country. To win the award, a company must meet certain qualifications related to veteran hiring and retention, providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources and more.
“We are honored to offer our nation’s veterans a new career path, and to provide them with the support and growth opportunities that will benefit them and their families,” said Melissa Circelli, Black Knight Chief Human Resources Officer. “We’re endlessly appreciative of the dedication that our brave service members have shown our country and count ourselves lucky to have their experience and skills in support of our strategic goals.”
Black Knight was one of 160 nationwide recipients of this year’s HIRE Vets Medallion Award. In addition to showcasing a commitment to hiring veterans, this year’s award winners also demonstrated their intention to provide veteran hires with long-term career options that employ their unique military skills, and tuition support for those who want to advance their education while employed.
In addition to the accolades given by the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Defense recognized Black Knight for its commitment to the military and their families through the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) status and support of its Military Spouse Employment Partnership. Black Knight is also one of the underwriting corporate sponsors for The Folded Flag Foundation, a non-profit providing scholarships to spouses and children of fallen service members. Circelli also serves on the board of Operation New Uniform, which gives veterans the tools and preparation they need to translate their military service into a rewarding career.
Black Knight is a proud supporter of the military, veterans and their families, and continues to explore new opportunities to elevate their career goals and post-military lives.
