Employees of Atlas Van Lines accept the ESGR Honored Employer Award.
Serving the men and women who serve this great country has always been a top priority for Atlas Van Lines. Recently, the Indiana Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve named Atlas, who has a long tradition of service as a government move provider, the recipient of the Honored Employer Award. This award recognizes employers to support the Guard and Reserve Employees.
"Atlas has always had a strong commitment to military service men and women, and we’ll always admire their global perspective, leadership and other quality characteristics,” said Glen Dunkerson, CEO of Atlas World Group, Inc. “We’re thrilled to receive a prestigious award from the ESGR, and we’ll continue our mission of helping to provide employment opportunities while also dedicating time and resources to help our military transition from deployment to employment in today’s world.”
This award win happened approximately one year after Atlas became the first Indiana company to sign a national Statement of Support with the ESGR, pledging that:
- Atlas fully recognizes and enforces the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
- Atlas managers and supervisors will have the tools to effectively manage employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
- Atlas appreciates the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans.
- Atlas will continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, crisis and in war.
