  • Orion Talent is Celebrating - 2020 HIRE Vets Gold Medallion & 50,000th Veteran Hire

Veterans Day is celebrated today; but, at Orion Talent, every day is about veterans! We are proud to continue our mission nearly 30 years after our founding. Within our Military Team, our dedication to our military colleagues drives everything we do.

And, so it is with great pride that we celebrate the fact that we have just reached our 50,000th military hire and have been recognized as a Gold Medallion recipient of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Award.

2020 HIRE Vets Gold Medallion Award

Earlier this week, the U.S. Department of Labor recognized Orion Talent as a Gold Medallion recipient of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Program Award during a live stream ceremony hosted by Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia at the Department's headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Signed into law in May 2017 by President Donald J. Trump, the HIRE Vets Medallion is the only federal-level veterans’ employment award that recognizes a company or organization’s commitment to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development. This is the second year that Orion Talent has received this prestigious recognition.

Additionally, Orion Talent is proud to announce it has reached the important milestone of 50,000 veteran hires. (See more about this achievement in the infographic below.) These veterans have been matched with rewarding careers across all industries, in all 50 states and 15 different countries. These service members represent all branches of services from the Enlisted, Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO), Junior Military Officer (JMO), and Senior Military Officer (SMO) ranks. More than 8,700 companies have helped make this amazing milestone possible by relying on Orion Talent to provide top talent transitioning from the military.

A Message from our CEO

"I am pleased that Orion Talent has once again been recognized with a HIRE Vets Gold Medallion at the same time that we are celebrating our 50,000th veteran hire,” said Mike Starich, Orion Talent CEO, who served as an officer in the Marine Corps. “Mason Graham graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, where he played football, followed by a distinguished military career as a Marine Corps Officer. He epitomizes all of the attributes and intangibles demonstrated by transitioning service members and the values that they bring to the workforce. I wish him all the best in his new career as an Account Manager at Abiomed, a global leader in healthcare technology and innovation, where I know he will have a positive impact from day one."
