Black Mountain Sand Receives U.S. Navy Reserve Outstanding Employer Support Award
The United States Navy Reserve recently named Black Mountain Sand a recipient of its Outstanding Employer Support Award.
Almost one-half of the U.S. military is comprised of the Guard and Reserve. The Department of Defense shares these citizen warriors with their civilian employers. This award was created to publicly recognize those employers who provide outstanding support to their employees who serve in the Navy Reserve. The certificate states, “By virtue of your actions, you have upheld the high ideal of service to one’s Country and furthered the cause of freedom through your support of the United States Navy Reserve.” To be considered for the award, employers are nominated from a Guard or Reserve member who is employed by the organization they are nominating.
“We are very honored to receive the Outstanding Employer Support Award from the U.S. Navy Reserve,” says Jason Morin, CEO who is also a U.S. Military veteran. “We know the importance of supporting these employees to ensure they can have a successful civilian career while continuing their selfless service to our Armed Forces and country. These dedicated men and women have the skills and experience needed to make positive contributions to our workforce, communities, and nation.”
Black Mountain Sand has always recognized the Guard and Reserves are essential to the strength of our nation and the well-being of our communities. To pledge our support, our company signed a Statement of Support with the DoD program, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), in February of 2020. The intent of the program is to encourage employers to act as advocates for employee participation in the military.
We are honored to receive this recognition of corporate stewardship and as an outstanding employer in support of our nation’s finest men and women. Thank you to the employees who nominated us and for your noble service.
