News : Convergys Receives Outstanding Navy Reserve Employer Support Award
Cincinnati, OH, July 1, 2016 -- Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), a global provider in customer management, announced it was recognized by the United States Navy Reserve with an Outstanding Employer Support Award for 2016. The citation presented to Convergys states, "By virtue of your actions, you have upheld the high ideal of service to one’s Country, furthered the cause of freedom, and ensured the United States Navy Reserve is, indeed: Ready Now. Anytime. Anywhere."
A Petty Officer in the Navy Reserve and employee at the Convergys Arnold, Missouri contact center, nominated Convergys for outstanding support and accommodation of employees who also serve in the U.S. military. Convergys has ensured that it maintains employment positions for its reservist employees upon return from active duty deployments, providing flexibility for them and their families. The Company also actively hires military veterans, reservists and military spouses.
"Convergys is proud to promote a great work environment where our employees can grow with the company, build rewarding careers and serve our country," said Kristin Ranek, Arnold Site Director who traveled to Norfolk, Virginia for the award presentation. "It was a great honor for us to accept this award on behalf of our talented and dedicated team. Supporting our employees in the military, and their families, is one way of living our value to serve the community. As we celebrate Independence Day, we salute all our veterans and our entire team who help to make Convergys a great place to work."
The award was presented by the Office of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), which is a U.S. Department of Defense program that develops and promotes supportive work environments for Service members in the Reserve Components through outreach, recognition, and educational opportunities that increase awareness of applicable laws, and resolves employment conflicts between the Service members and their employers. ESGR has served our country for more than 40 years, fostering a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.
