DHL Honored With "Chairman’s Above And Beyond" Award For Support Of National Guard And Reserve
DHL, the world’s leading express delivery and logistics company, today announced it has received the “Chairman’s Above and Beyond Award” from Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). The Ohio Committee of the EGSR annually recognizes those individuals and organizations that demonstrate outstanding service to the nation’s defense through continuing support of the National Guard and Reserve service members and their employers.
An employee based in Ohio nominated DHL for the Award due to the support he received over the years as a reservist. The nomination was reviewed for higher consideration of DHL’s overall support for military duty of its employees in the State of Ohio. DHL was awarded for going “above and beyond” the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) over the past year for granting leave and providing support for military duty by its employees.
“DHL is proud of its brave servicemen and women that have sacrificed for this country, and for their service with U.S. National Guard and Reserve,” said Tom Snowberger, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, for DHL.
Angela Rece, Manager at DHL in Wilmington, Ohio, accepted the award at the EGSR Annual Awards & Recognition Dinner on Saturday, March 15 at the Marriott Hotel in Dublin, Ohio.
The “Chairman’s Above and Beyond Award” is awarded at the State Committee level, and is approved by the Committee Chair. The “Chairman’s Above and Beyond Award” is given to honor the Employers of Reserve Component members who have gone above and beyond the requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). ESGR’s goal is to support America’s employers who share their employees with the Department of Defense to ensure our National security.
