Ecolab was recently presented the Minnesota Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Pro Patria Award for our commitment to and support of associates who participate in the National Guard and Reserves.
ESGR’s Pro Patria Award is presented annually by each ESGR State Committee to one small, one large and one public sector employer in their state.
As part of the nomination process, MN ESGR evaluated our hiring, training and retention policies and resources related to military service members, veterans and their families. Some of the most notable programs included the establishment and growth of MERGE (Ecolab’s military employee resource group), service member recognition programs and training for managers of military associates.
In related news, Military Times recently included Ecolab in its 2018 Best for Vets employer ranking list. Each year, Military Times, an independent news source for the military community, compiles this list of 100 leading U.S. employers based on an assessment of culture, policies and resources dedicated to military veterans and military-connected employees.
