United Rentals Honored for Dedication to Veteran Employment and Career Growth

United Rentals recently won three awards for the company’s long-standing commitment to supporting veterans in their transition into the workforce.  

A significant portion of the United Rentals team has a military background and the company remains focused on hiring, retaining, and advancing the careers of veterans.

"United Rentals has a strong focus on veterans because we believe individuals with military backgrounds align with our company’s values of strong leadership, teamwork, discipline, diversity and work ethic," said Craig Pintoff, executive vice president and chief administrative officer, United Rentals. 

United Rentals is the recipient of the following three awards: the 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award, 2024 Military Friendly Employer, and the Gold and 2023 Military Times Best for Vets.

The 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award was given by the U.S. Department of Labor for the company's initiatives in recruiting, employing and retaining veterans. 

For this award, United Rentals met award criteria and "demonstrated both patriotism and recognition of values veterans bring to the workplace," according to the Department of Labor.

The 2024 Military Friendly Employer, Gold, recognition is designated for employers setting an example with military and veteran programs and initiatives. Companies are assessed on various criteria such as veteran hiring, retention and career advancement. 

The Military Friendly program, operated by VIQTORY, creates civilian opportunities for veterans. 

The 2023 Military Times Best For Vets highlights efforts to recruit, retain and develop current and former service members and support military spouses and caregivers. To determine award winners, Military Times evaluates companies in the areas of most significant importance.

"These awards reflect our ongoing commitment to helping veterans make their careers at United Rentals and to joining us in working with our customers to build a better future,” Pintoff said.
