HILLIARD, OHIO, May 22, 2015 -- The Ohio Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) recently announced that it has awarded its 'Above and Beyond' award to Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS), a global manufacturer of water management products and solutions for commercial, residential, infrastructure, and agricultural applications.
The award recognizes employers in each state who provide their Guard and Reserve employees with additional benefits beyond the minimum requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). ADS was one of only 35 Ohio employers chosen from more than 1,000 nominees.
ESGR was established in 1972 to develop and maintain employer support for Guard and Reserve service. Paramount to ESGR's mission is encouraging the employment of Guardsmen and Reservists who bring integrity, global perspective and proven leadership to the civilian workforce.
In April 2013, the ADS Ludlow, Mass., facility was also presented with the Massachusetts ESGR 'Above and Beyond' Award. In addition, the Ludlow facility manager, David Pare, received the Massachusetts ESGR 'Patriot Award'. This award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees.
