U.S. Department of Labor Salutes Mischler with 2022 HIRE Vets Platinum Award
November 10, 2022 – U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized Mischler Financial Group, Inc. (“Mischler”) as a recipient of the 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony on November 9 and presented by the U.S. Department of Labor. Mischler earned the platinum award after applying earlier this year. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.
Dean Chamberlain, CEO, and Principal of Mischler Financial said, “As the financial industry’s oldest veteran-owned broker-dealer, we’re honored to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor and to receive this distinguished award. We have always prioritized hiring, mentoring, and advancing the careers of qualified and capable military veterans, simply because we have unique insight into the training, skills, and talents that many veterans can bring to any organization.
Added Mr. Chamberlain, “In our industry, human capital is perhaps any firm’s greatest asset. Our investments in human capital, and in particular those we have made in hiring and training military veterans, have delivered exponential returns to our firm, and true added value to our clients and customers. Most important, we take great pride in helping those who have valiantly served our country with honor and integrity transition to roles that enable them to further leverage their talents.
