November 8, 2023 – U.S. Acting Secretary of Labor Julie A. Su recognized Protection Strategies Incorporated as one of the recipients of the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony presented by U.S. Department of Labor.

“As a veteran, from a family with a long history of serving in America’s armed services and many wars, I am very proud of the PSI family. The entire PSI team is honored and humbled to receive this award that reflects our commitment to hiring veterans,” said CEO and President Sean P. Williams. “Our veterans bring invaluable skills to our company and our customers, directly impacting the national security mission. We remain forever faithful to all ‘those who dare.’ ”
Protection Strategies Incorporated joins 858 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans, but also ensuring that they have a long- term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired through their military service.
Recipients of the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award meet rigorous employment and veteran integration assistance criteria, including veteran hiring and retention percentages; availability of veteran-specific resources; leadership programming for veterans; dedicated human resource efforts; pay compensation and tuition assistance programs for veterans.
