German American Bank has shown its commitment to supporting the military service of current and future employees by making a pledge to the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) program. Stephen Williams, Ombudsman and Chair of the Indiana ESGR Committee visited German American Bank’s Main Street office in Jasper for a brief presentation about the program before the pledge signing and plaque presentation.
“We are honored to sign this pledge and join the ESGR to promote supportive work environments for our service members,” states Neil Dauby, President and CEO of German American Bank. “German American Bank is committed to an inclusive workplace and are proud to employ those who serve, and have served, our country, including active members of the National Guard and Reserve.”
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve is a Department of Defense program that develops and promotes supportive work environments for service members in the reserve components. Through outreach and education, ESGR works to increase awareness of applicable laws, i.e., the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). By creating a culture in which all American employers value the military service of their employees, they hope to limit any issues between employers and Service members. When issues do arise, ESGR offers free, neutral mediation and information on what the law requires.
