Strongwell Signs Statement of Support for our Troops
On November 8, 2012, Strongwell was recognized by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) for its support of our servicemen and women in the National Guard and Military Reserve. Started in 1972, ESGR is a Department of Defense agency with the mission to develop and promote employer support for Guard and Reserve service members. To be recognized by the ESGR, Strongwell signed the following formal Statement of Support:
- We fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).
- Our managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
- We appreciate the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans.
- We will continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, in crisis and in war.
Representatives from Strongwell were presented a plaque and employer medal by Major General Daniel E. Long, Jr., Adjutant General of the Virginia National Guard and Major General Terry M. Haston, Adjutant General of the Tennessee National Guard. These pieces will be displayed in Strongwell’s corporate offices as a formal demonstration of Strongwell’s culture of support for our military forces.
