Biodex employee, Chris Knight, nominated his supervisors and the CEO for employer awards for their support of his military responsibilities as a US Army Reservist. Supervisors, Frank Catizone and Donna St. John received the Patriot Award; CEO, James Reiss, was presented with the Above and Beyond Award.
The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to recognize employers that provide outstanding support to employees who serve. Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.
The Above and Beyond Award was established to acknowledge employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment ACT. The award is given in limited numbers by state committees to employers who have had at least one of their supervisors/managers recognized with a Patriot Award, and who have signed or agree to sign a statement of support (SoS).
