Intelligent Waves (IW), a veteran-owned and operated, leading IT integrator that delivers mission-focused multi-domain operational expertise and innovation to the Government through high-impact technology solutions, is proud to announce the U.S. Department of Labor awarded it the 2022 HIRE Vets Gold Medallion. The HIRE Vets Medallion Program is the only federal award program that recognizes employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans. Intelligent Waves has been the recipient of this award for the past two years.

Intelligent Waves demonstrates patriotism and recognition of the value veterans bring to the workplace by supporting veterans’ transition to civilian careers by partnering with Warriors Ethos, a non-profit that assists veterans, service members, and their spouses. Since its inception, IW has raised millions of dollars for this cause and contributed hundreds of hours of community service to its employees. In addition, IW’s employees actively and personally follow through by mentoring and guiding individual veterans to ensure their successful transition back to the workforce in Northern Virginia.

“It is truly an honor to receive the HIRE Vets Gold Medallion for 2022,” says Tony Crescenzo, CEO of Intelligent Waves. “This award is a testament to our company’s commitment to hiring and supporting veteran employees. We are proud to be recognized for our efforts to create a workplace where veterans can thrive.”

Intelligent Waves joins 834 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia. They have shown a commitment 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. Recipients of the 2022 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. As a result, more than 1,400 employers have earned a HIRE Vets Medallion Award since 2018.
