U.S. Recognizes Sandia Labs for Hiring Veterans

U.S. Department of Labor HIRE Vets Platinum Medallion Award

Ten percent of Sandia employees self-identified as veterans in 2020.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recently recognized Sandia National Laboratories as one of 849 recipients of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by the Department of Labor. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act Medallion Program recognizes employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.

Sandia's platinum designation — the highest category of award — honors the value the Labs has exhibited for the contributions of veterans in the workplace through a long-term career and growth plan that uses the skills veterans acquired through their military service.

In 2020, Sandia hired 556 veterans and retained them for at least 12 months. "Veterans are a vital part of our workforce, and this Department of Labor platinum award recognizes that great things come from working with members of the U.S. Armed Forces who have steadfastly served," said Laboratories Director James Peery.
