The Citizen - 11/10/2023

Nov. 10—An Auburn employer is one of 19 recognized this week by the U.S. Department of Labor for hiring military veterans.

Nucor Steel is a recipient of the gold-level HIRE Vets Medallion Award, which recognizes efforts to recruit, employ and retain veterans.

The recipients were announced by the department's acting secretary, Julie Su, during a ceremony at its headquarters Wednesday.

"Recipients of the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award demonstrate a commitment to recruiting, hiring and retaining veterans as they help them develop meaningful, long-term careers," Su said. "From small-town businesses to Fortune 500 companies, these employers understand that veterans are uniquely qualified and dedicated employees who make significant contributions in the workplace."

The award was created following the 2017 signing of the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing Military Veterans Act. Criteria for the award include veteran integration assistance, hiring and retention percentages, availability of veteran-specific resources, leadership programs for veterans, dedicated human resource efforts and compensation and tuition assistance programs for veterans.

Nucor, located on York Street, employs more than 250 people.
