Mercury One Team Members Receive ESGR Awards

On Thursday, April 20th, Mercury One staff members Michael Powell and Suzanne Grishman were presented with Awards for Mercury One’s Support for The Guard and Reserve Service Member. Chair of Employer Support for the Guard and Reserves, Larry Thompson, presented the awards for their great support of colleague Yuriy Tymoshenko’s reserve career while being employed with Mercury One.

The U.S. has relied heavily on Guard and Reserve Service members since entering continuous operations more than 14 years ago. Employer support enhances retention rates in the Armed Forces and strengthens our national security. To recognize employers who support their Guard and Reserve employees, ESGR grants a series of Department of Defense awards.

Mercury One joins other employers in pledging the following.

  • To fully recognize, honor and comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act
  • Provide our managers and supervisors with tools to effectively manage those who serve in the Guard and Reserve
  • Appreciate the values, leadership, and unique skills that Service members bring to the workforce
  • Continually recognize and support our country’s Service members and their families in peace, in crisis and in war

Recognizing supportive employers is vital to ESGR’s mission. ESGR’s 54 State Committees actively promote awards as a key element in furthering employer support, while strengthening relationships between service members and employers. These Department of Defense awards honor the sacrifices made by so many employers year after year.

ESGR a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment.

Suzanne Grishman joined Mercury One as Executive Director in January 2016. Michael Powell joined Mercury One in March 2016 and works in donor development and operations for The Nazerene Fund. He is also a veteran himself.
