Congratulations to YASH Americas COO Don Young, who was recently honored for creating an environment of support and professional growth for current and former military members during his time at YASH Technologies and c5mi. Don received the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Patriot Award for his commitment to providing Vice President of Sales Chris Cadle with the flexibility necessary to allow Chris to fulfill his Naval Reserve duty.
The ESGR Patriot Award reflects selfless efforts made to support citizen warriors through a wide range of measures, including flexible work schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.
In 1972, the Department of Defense established ESGR with the charter of fostering a culture of employer support for Guard and Reserve members. Today, more than 4,500 volunteers serve on ESGR State Committees maintaining employer support programs, providing informative briefings and mediation, and recognizing employers who go above and beyond in their dedication to employees who pledge to be both a citizen and protector of our nation. Since ESGR’s creation four decades ago, thousands of employers have been honored for their commitment to stand beside those who serve.”
