Columbus — Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense office, announced May 14 that SC Fastening Systems of Macedonia was honored with an Above and Beyond Award in recognition of extraordinary support of its employees who serve in the Ohio Guard and Reserve.
“The ESGR Above and Beyond Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize American employers providing extraordinary patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said Steve Koper, Ohio ESGR State Chair. “Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.”
To earn the recognition, SC Fastening Systems has reviewed and amended its human resources policies to ensure compliance with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. Many employers provide above and beyond support with pay differential to offset the loss of wages, and extension of health care benefits which complement coverage provided by the military when their employees are mobilized.
SC Fastening Systems is an industrial distributor of fasteners, concrete anchors, cutting tools, abrasives, hydraulics/pneumatics, welding supplies, janitorial and safety supplies, specialized packaging, as well as specialty fasteners and hardware.
