CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense office, announced that twenty-six Cintas locations in fifteen states will participate in signing a Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve on Tuesday, February 10th, 2015. Of those 26 locations, the Mason headquarters of the Cintas Corporation will participate in a signing that represents the company’s longstanding commitment to helping employ National Guard and Reserve service members.
The Statement of Support confirms the Cintas Corporation joins other employers in pledging:
- We fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
- Our managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
- We appreciate the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Service Members.
- We will continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, in crises and in war.
“Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units. I am asking all US employers to take a look at their current human resources policies to incorporate practices supportive of Guard and Reserve employees,” said Matt Disher, Military Recruiting Program Manager. “Guard and reserve members face unique challenges related to the tremendous amounts of responsibility outside of their professional and private lives. Aside from the importance of hiring, it is crucial to provide service members with fruitful opportunities, benefits and development. There are few better places to find individuals willing to take on challenges and contribute to the team effort than in the National Guard and Reserve forces.”
