Samaritan’s Hatch Receives National Honor

Samaritan Health Services Veterans Navigator Kyle Hatch was recently announced as a recipient of G.I. Jobs® 2022 Employee Veteran Leadership Award.

This prestigious annual honor is awarded to employees who are US military veterans and who demonstrate the finest qualities of our nation’s military, including leadership, teamwork, discipline, determination, adaptability, a strong work ethic and a can-do attitude. 

Hatch was one of 27 honorees on G.I. Jobs® second annual list. He was selected for having a positive impact on the organization he works for, as well as in the military and veteran community. 

“These 27 veterans exemplify the countless veterans who leverage the hard and soft skills they learned in the military and apply them as civilians. They excel at their duties and responsibilities, go above and beyond in helping others, advocate for their veteran brothers and sisters, and set an example for those around them,” said Dan Fazio, G.I. Jobs managing editor. “We are proud to shine the spotlight on yet another cohort of extraordinary veterans whose success has been noticed by others.”

The veterans advocate for the advancement of fellow veterans within their organizations, mentor other employees, and work to bridge the cultural gap between veteran and non-veteran employees. They go above and beyond by volunteering their time.

Profiles of the 2022 Employee Veteran Leadership Awards honorees will be published in the July issue of G.I. Jobs, distributed free in digital and print to transitioning service members, veterans and their families around the world.
