The CEO of Mako Medical Announced That the Company Was Awarded for Its Military Programs

Mako Medical was selected by the U.S. Department of Labor for building programs around military veterans

PR Newswire

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S Department of Labor has recognized Mako Medical with a Medallion Award for hiring veterans. 

Mako Medical has spent years building programs designed and tailored for veterans and National Guard members. "Mako Medical has carved out entire divisions of the company that only hire military veterans," says Chad Price, CEO of Mako Medical.

The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act 2017 (HIRE Vets Act or the Act) was signed by President Trump and requires the Secretary of Labor to establish a program, by rule, that recognizes employer efforts to recruit, employ and retain veterans. The criteria for winning the award included the number of veterans hired, the number of veterans retained for at least 12 months, the number of new hires that were veterans, training programs implemented to help veterans, leadership opportunities during employment for veterans and special programs built for veterans employed at the company. "America's veterans are proven leaders who bring skills, dedication, and determination to our nation's workforce," said the U.S. Secretary of Labor. "To earn a Hire Vets Medallion Award, job creators must demonstrate a solid commitment to providing veterans with the opportunity to build a meaningful career. This program recognizes a standard for excellence in veterans hiring, and helps veterans identify employers who are committed to advancing veterans in the workplace."

Mako Medical was recognized in Washington, D.C. for all of the veteran programs Mako has built within the company. "From day one, our team decided we were going to carve out entire divisions of Mako and only hire military veterans," said Price. Today, Mako Medical employs hundreds of veterans and has built training programs, recruiting programs and leadership programs for the veterans on the team. "Our entire team made a commitment to focus on these types of programs from the start. We knew what our veterans needed most was a job and opportunity to be successful."

Chad Price went on to explain that the entire purpose behind the creation of Mako Medical was to create funding for local nonprofits/charities, to employ military veterans and to support Christian missionaries around the world. "It is why we do what we do. Some companies are focused on shareholder value. Others are focused on returns for their investors. We are focused on making an impact in other people's lives. The more we grow, the more people we can help. The more revenue we have, the more funding we have to work with." 

Today, Mako Medical supports over 472 different charities around the country, employs hundreds of veterans, and is active with many nonprofits. Mako Medical has recently launched a new company called MakoRx focused on Pharmacy services and hiring veterans.
