The Department of Labor has chosen Eaton to receive DOL’s HIRE Vets Medallion Award in recognition of the power management company’s efforts to recruit, employ and retain military veterans.
Eaton said Friday the department evaluates award recipients based on criteria such as leadership programming, compensation and tuition assistance programs and availability of resources for the country’s former active-duty service members.
“We are honored to be recognized for our commitment to advancing veteran careers. And we see investing in veteran-specific programs and resources as an ongoing part of our talent development strategy,” said Ernest Marshall Jr, chief human resources officer of Eaton.
The Ohio-based company works with federal, state and local government customers to help them manage electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power systems.
