Chicago Executive Airport is proud to announce that it recently received the HIRE Vets Medallion from the United States Department of Labor. In a letter addressed to our executive director, Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia stated that by winning this award, CEA “demonstrated patriotism worthy of praise, and showed recognition of the value veterans bring to the workplace.”
The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is the only federal-level veterans’ employment award that recognizes a company or organization’s commitment to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development. In order to qualify for the HIRE Vets Medallion Award, an organization must meet specific human resources requirements for the hiring, support, and retention of US military veterans, with a demonstrated track record of success.
The communities of Prospect Heights and Wheeling have long valued and supported our military. CEA is proud to continue that tradition by hiring and supporting veteran employees. The skills and experience that former service members bring to our airport are immeasurable, and we would not be the same today without them. Thank you to all those who have served and continue to serve our country, and may God bless America.
