Watershed Security, LLC, an ISO 9001:2015-certified provider of Cybersecurity and Information Technology solutions for defense and civilian markets, has received the HIRE Vets Platinum Medallion award from the U.S. Department of Labor for the hiring, retention, and training of military veterans all over the country. Over 70% of Watershed’s workforce are veterans, and Watershed provides training, continuing education, and career opportunities to help veterans obtain careers in high-demand technical fields.
The HIRE Vets Medallion program was established under the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans, or HIRE Vets, Act signed into law on May 5, 2017 to recognize employers who hire, retain, and support military veterans. The Platinum Medallion is the highest level of award a company can receive for this program and the citation states that “[Watershed Security] has demonstrated a model of patriotism worthy of praise as well as a recognition of the value veterans bring to the workplace.”
A veteran himself, Watershed Security CEO Ronald Boustedt commented on receiving the HIRE Vets Award, “As a Veteran of the US Navy, it is my honor to create opportunities for our Nations Veterans who have proudly served and deserve opportunities to do what they love after their service to our country. I feel it important for all to value our Veterans who have given so much for our nation.”
