During a virtual award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Secretary of Labor, Eugene Scalia, recognized us as one of the 675 recipients of the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion Award.
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is earned by leading businesses that demonstrate unparalleled commitment to hiring and retaining veterans. We’re excited to say we took home the gold medallion!
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is based on:
- Veteran hiring and retention
- Providing veteran-specific resources
- Leadership programming
- Dedicated human resources
- Compensation and training assistance programs
Our Veteran employees said it best themselves when asked about their Lee Company experience:
“I left the military in 2012 looking for my next career, after years in the business sector, I came to Lee Company where I recognized a company that follows a similar structure, base values, and serving people. As a team lead, the company utilizes my leadership abilities I’ve acquired in the Army and I enjoy helping homeowners, my team, and bettering the company to the best of my ability.”
– Clay Tidwell, Plumber, US Army, Corporal
“It was a hard decision to transition from the stability of the military to a civilian career. Lee Company has provided an environment of stability and the opportunity for growth that exceeds mine, and my family’s expectations. Truly the best company I have ever worked for, and I hope to retire here at the end of my working days. Hooah!”
– Richard Mount, Facility Manager, US Army, Sergeant
