SHIREMANSTOWN, Pa. – Pennsylvania Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense program, announced that SERVPRO of Harrisburg West, signed a Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve April 28.
In signing the Statement of Support, Jason Quick, Vice President of Operations, reaffirmed the company’s support for the men and women who serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
The Statement of Support confirms SERVPRO of Harrisburg West joins other employers in pledging:
“Today, supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units,” said Pennsylvania ESGR South Central Area Chair James Astor and continued: “I am asking all Southwest Area Pennsylvania employers to take a look at their current human resources policies to incorporate policies supportive of Guard and Reserve employees.” Many Pennsylvania employers provide support above and beyond their legal requirements by law by offering pay-differential to offset the loss of wages, and extension of health care benefits, which complement coverage provided by the military, when their employees mobilize.”
SERVPRO of Harrisburg West joins a cadre of Fortune 500 companies, state and federal, agencies and thousands of America’s employers in demonstrating support for our armed forces. Astor added: “By signing the Statement of Support, SERVPRO of Harrisburg West is sending a clear message to its employees that while they are serving their country, they do not have to worry about their civilian jobs.”
ESGR is a Department of Defense program that develops and promotes supportive work environments for service members in the National Guard and Reserve through outreach, recognition, and educational opportunities that increase awareness of applicable laws. ESGR also provides assistance in resolving conflicts between Service members and their employers.
