CONCORD, Calif., Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AssetMark recently was presented with special awards by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), recognizing the firm's new Military Time Off (MTO) policy. AssetMark's MTO benefit allows its employees to take up to 10 days of additional paid time off for required military training or call to duty.
AssetMark Associate Elvis Medica, Business Development Officer for the Midwest Region and a reservist, worked with the firm's leadership team to implement a Military Time Off policy. "This new policy really demonstrates AssetMark's commitment in supporting reservists and their families while away at training," said Medica. "It also makes balancing work and military life a little easier. My family and I can't express enough gratitude for all involved in making this change and salute AssetMark as they are true patriots."
Charles Goldman was presented with the Above and Beyond Award, which recognizes employers who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) by providing their Guard and Reserve employees additional, non-mandated benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages, extended health benefits and other similar benefits. "This is our small way to recognize the great service from the men and women of our military," said Goldman. "We are so proud of them, and we truly appreciate their service to this great country."
Michael Kim received the Patriot Award, which recognizes support of warrior citizens through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed.
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Arizona Chair Darren Venters was on hand at AssetMark's national sales meeting in Scottsdale to present the awards.
