Sunbelt Honored for Military Veteran RecruitmentNovember 16, 2022
Sunbelt Rentals recently received three awards for the company’s efforts to recruit and retain military veterans in North America and globally.
Sunbelt Rentals has received the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans (HIRE Vets) Gold Medallion Award from the U.S. Department of Labor. To achieve the 2022 Gold Level recognition in the large employer category, Sunbelt Rentals met two requirements—hiring no fewer than 7% of veterans during the 2021 calendar year and retaining no fewer than 75% of veterans hired in 2020 for 12 months.
The company also has been named a top 2023 Military Friendly® Employer in the nation for the third year in a row. This is the first year that the Sunbelt Rentals earned the Gold Distinction, which requires an employer to score within 10% of the 10th-ranking employer in their category. In addition, Sunbelt Rentals U.K. was presented with the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MOD) Gold Armed Forces Covenant Award.
“We had a vision to build a multinational program geared to support the unique challenges faced by our veteran teammates and their families,” said Shane McKenzie, Sunbelt Rentals director of veterans programs. “We now lead one that exceeds industry standards and is recognized internationally as better than best-in-class.”
