School may be on break, but DirectEmployers and our Members are still hard at work. Learn more in this episode of The Employment Line.
In June, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel released the following statement:
“I commend and thank the 15 recipients of the 2013 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award for providing exceptional support to our Citizen Warriors. So many of our Nation’s employers are finding ways to contribute to our Nation’s security, but these employers stand out for their commitment to our Guardsmen and Reservists. They have the gratitude and thanks of the entire Department of Defense.”
The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense office, felt these employers distinguished themselves among the 2,899 nominations received from Guardsmen and Reservists. Three Members of DirectEmployers received this prestigious award:
- Colorado Springs Utilities
- DaVita, Inc
What a great honor to be recognized. Congratulations to our Members!
