This year, Asurion was honored to receive the Pro Patria award, given annually by the Defense Department Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) committee. The award honors employers “who show exceptional support for our national defense by adopting personnel policies that make it easier for employees to participate in the National Guard and Reserve.”
As a company, Asurion makes a special effort to go above and beyond our legal requirements to accommodate the needs of active service men and women through flexible schedules, time off before and after deployment to be with family and granting leaves of absence if necessary.
“We are honored to support those employees who are serving our country,” said Hoke. “We work hard to create policies that allow flexibility for our employees and this award truly reflects those efforts. We’re grateful to the ESGR for their recognition.”
In addition to creating an accommodating work environment, Asurion supports service member-employees with additional services that go well beyond what the law requires. For example, the company will provide gap pay and full benefits during the first year an employee is called to active duty or training. This allows family members to maintain financial security while their loved one is serving abroad.
