Blackhawk is proud to announce that they have won the Medium
Employer Award from DAV. The Medium
Employer Award is given to an employer with 201 to 499 employees. Evaluation
for this award consists of the strength of the company’s veteran recruiting and
hiring efforts, retention and career-building effort, company policies towards
disabled veterans, active-duty, and veteran employees, and community outreach
initiatives to support all veterans. The award will be given June 10, 2016 in
Green Bay, WI.
Inc. has grown nearly 400% in the past 3 years with the help of our veteran
employees. “Blackhawk is an exponentially growing company in a challenging
industry. Without our veterans we would not be able to meet the needs of
our customers. Focusing recruiting efforts on veterans has given us an
opportunity to find skill sets and new opportunities not open to organizations
without the knowledge and expertise of our nation’s heroes. We are proud
to be an employer of choice for veterans,” said Anne Pesik, Director of Human
Resources. Blackhawk’s workforce consists of 11% disabled veterans.
