ITA Group Receives National Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Award
ITA Group has been recognized for outstanding service and continued employment policies and practices that support National Guard and Reserve members employed by ITA Group.
The ‘Above and Beyond Award’ was presented on behalf of the men and women of the National Guard and Reserve Forces.
ITA Group’s Commitment of Support
In October, ITA Group joined a cadre of Fortune 500 employers nationwide in pledging to fully recognize, honor and comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA), and to provide managers and supervisors with the tools they need to effectively manage employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve. Since then, ITA Group has continued to prioritize its efforts in support of the pledge.
“ITA Group is unequivocally committed to supporting team members in their affiliation with the Guard and Reserve,” according to CJ Jacobson, Vice President, People & Culture at ITA Group. “We operate in alignment with, and in some regards above, our formal commitment to empowering our team members in their areas of training and active duty, and we’re honored to be recognized for our efforts.”
Additionally as part of the pledge, ITA Group commits to consciously appreciating the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce; encouraging opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans; and continually recognizing and supporting service members and their families, in peace, in crises and in war.
