Gannon & Scott Recognized for Commitment to Veterans
The refiner received a distinction from HIRE Vets for the fifth year in a row.
The company received the “Gold” Award for Small Businesses—a distinction it has received since 2019—from HIRE Vets, also known as The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017.
HIRE Vets recognizes employers who have established clear efforts to recruit, employ, and retain U.S. residents who have committed time to the armed forces.
Employers meeting the criteria of the HIRE Vets Act are eligible for the platinum or gold “HIRE Vets Medallion Award” and are categorized by large (more than 500 employees), medium (51-499 employees) or small (1-50 employees).
To be eligible for its award, Gannon & Scott maintained standards such as ensuring veterans make up 7 percent of all new hires, 7 percent of its total employee count, and retaining 75 percent of veteran hires at the company for at least 12 months.
“We are proud to have a positive relationship with veterans and veteran organizations like HIRE Vets,” said Gannon & Scott President Christopher Jones, who is an Army veteran.
“Our commitment to veterans is only a fraction of their commitment to our country, and we will continue to do whatever we can to curate a positive environment for veterans and their families for years to come.”
