We are pleased to announce that Navstar President and CEO Joanna Alexis was recently nominated and selected for an Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Patriot Award!
Patriot Awards are awarded to individuals for their outstanding personal commitment to Guard and Reserve employees. This Department of Defense award reflects the efforts of an individual to support citizen warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed.
Both Joanna and Navstar are known for their commitment to those serving our nation, evidenced by both a high veterans employment rate (38%) and generous benefits such as the payment of an employee’s full salary while they are serving on active duty.
Our Nation has relied heavily on Guard and Reserve Service members since entering continuous operations more than 14 years ago, and employer support enhances retention rates in the Armed Forces and in the end, strengthens our national security.
“Veterans, and those who still serve, bring an added value to our national security focused mission, delivering a high level of experience, excellence and an esprit de corps to the workplace. I couldn’t be more pleased to receive this award and the validation it brings to our commitment to supporting our men and women in uniform. I am humbled to be recognized by ESGR in this way”, said Joanna Alexis, President and CEO of Navstar.
