AASKI Technology, Inc. of Tinton Falls has been honored by the Department of Labor with the HIRE Vets Medallion for its leadership in recruiting, employing, and retaining America’s veterans, Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ4) announced on Thursday.
The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017 (HIRE Vets Act or the Act) was supported by Smith and signed into law by President Trump on May 5, 2017. The Act created to program which recognizes and honors small, medium and large employers throughout the nation.
AASKI, a Woman and Minority Owned Business founded in 1997, was one of 239 companies recognized during the demonstration phase of the HIRE VETs program in 2018.
“Congratulations to AASKI Technology for the exemplary work they have done supporting the service men and women who have served our country, helping them transition into civilian life,” said Rep. Smith, who voted for the legislation—the 2017 Consolidated Appropriations Act—that created the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans (HIRE Vets) program.
“Many of our veterans face unique challenges when they transition into a civilian career, and we need businesses which will not only hire them, but guide them along their career path and help them advance in the civilian workforce,” Smith said. “AASKI has done this, and I am glad that they are being recognized for their work.”
“America’s veterans are proven leaders who bring skills, dedication, and determination to our nation’s workforce,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. “To earn a HIRE Vets Medallion Award, job creators must demonstrate a solid commitment to providing veterans with the opportunity to build a meaningful career. This program recognizes a standard for excellence in veterans hiring, and helps veterans identify employers who are committed to advancing veterans in the workplace.”
