ROCHESTER, NH – HRCU was recognized with the Above & Beyond Award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) earlier this month. They were nominated for this honor by HRCU Systems Administrator Daniel West, who also serves as a Technical Sergeant in the Rhode Island Air National Guard.
The Above and Beyond Award is presented by ESGR State Committees to recognize employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act by providing their Guard and Reserve employees additional, non-mandated benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages, extended health benefits, and other similar benefits.
The award is given in limited numbers by State Committees to employers who have had at least one of their supervisors/managers recognized with a Patriot Award, and who have signed or agree to sign an ESGR Statement of Support. In 2017, HRCU’s President & CEO Brian Hughes, EVP & COO Rosemary Shields and VP of Information Technology Ken Mauser were recognized with Patriot Awards. Additionally, in 2017, Hughes signed a Statement of Support for the ESGR on behalf of HRCU.
“We are truly honored to be recognized with the Above & Beyond Award,” said Hughes. “We thank Dan for his service and for nominating HRCU. We will continue to be proud supporters of the ESGR and our military.”
