LINCOLN, Neb, -- ALLO was one of 859 recipients of the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during a virtual award ceremony, presented by the U.S. Department of Labor, on Nov. 8.

ALLO earned the large company 2023 Platinum HIRE Vets Medallion award. This is the fourth year ALLO has been recognized with the HIRE Vets Medallion Award, but it is the first year ALLO has been recognized at the highest award level, Platinum. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) Medallion Program is the only federal award program recognizing employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans.

ALLO joins 858 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who are "committed to hiring veterans and ensuring they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired through their military service." ALLO is the only large company Platinum award winner in Nebraska.

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.

ALLO has benefit programs to support veterans transitioning to the workforce and active Guard and Reserve members, including a Military Leave Benefit. ALLO also offers a Skillbridge internship program for active-duty service members who are about to end their service and a pay differential benefit where ALLO will pay a deployed team member the difference between their ALLO salary and military pay to ensure the same income during their deployment.
