BioTek Nominated for Department of Defense’s Top Employer Award
News Mar 31, 2015
The Freedom Award is the highest recognition given by the DoD to employers for their support of National Guard and Reserve members. On behalf of the Secretary of Defense, ESGR runs the annual award program, which has presented the honor to 205 employers since 1996.
Almost half of the U.S. military is made up of National Guard and Reserve members, many of whom also hold jobs with civilian employers. The Freedom Award recognizes those employers that provide the most outstanding support for these Citizen Warriors. Up to 15 employers will be selected for this year’s award and honored at the Pentagon in an official ceremony in August.
"We are honored to be nominated for this award," noted Kathy Gendron, HR Director. "We are incredibly proud of our employees who serve our country. We feel that supporting our National Guard and Reservists, as well as their families, is just one small way we can help add to the strong foundation of freedom our country is built on."
