This level of award is given only to select companies demonstrating superior commitments to veteran employment and the military/veteran community. Netizen employs a significant percentage of veterans while providing free training, college scholarships, and paid internships to help veterans and military families obtain careers in high-demand technical fields such as cybersecurity.

The Platinum Medallion is the highest level of award a company can receive for this program and the citation states that “[Netizen] has demonstrated a model of patriotism worthy of praise as well as a recognition of the value veterans bring to the workplace.”

“Netizen is proud to employ a significant portion of military veterans. We acknowledge the diverse array of skills, talents, and backgrounds that this provides us with as a company.
