The top brass at Metis Technology Solutions and nearly one-fourth of its total workforce are veterans, earning the Albuquerque company a HIRE Vets Platinum Medallion Award this year from the U.S. Department of Labor.
It also won a 2019 SHIFT award from Innovate+Educate in recognition of the company’s recruitment efforts and partnership with the State Veteran Hiring Initiative, plus a gold-level Family Friendly Business Award from Family Friendly New Mexico.
Metis received a gold-level HIRE Vets medallion last year. But it advanced to the platinum level this year because of its aggressive policies and programs not only to hire vets, but also to ease their transition into the civilian workforce and provide opportunities for career advancement.
