Global biometric identity management and secure authentication solutions provider Crossmatch has been recognized for the exceptional treatment given to its Guard and Reserve employees. The company received the Department of Defense Employer Support for the Guard and Reserves (ESGR) Above and Beyond Award.
Presented in limited numbers by the ESGR State Committees, the Above and Beyond Award serves as recognition for exemplary treatment of Guard and Reserve employees, specifically though the providing of additional benefits not mandated by the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.
Given Crossmatch’s involvement within the military sector, the Above and Beyond Award goes to show the company’s support of service members both on and off the field of duty. Hardware and software solutions from Crossmatch provide biometric identification, authentication and enrollment for US military operations, enabling greater levels of safety, efficiency and security. Internally, as confirmed by this most recent award, Crossmatch further ensures a respectable and dignified workplace environment for service people.
“We are honored to be selected by the Florida ESGR to receive this award and proud to support our military servicemen and women,” said Crossmatch CEO Richard Agostinelli. “Congratulations to all our employees who create a culture of support for their colleagues that serve in defense of our country.”
As a prerequisite for the Above and Beyond Award, an employer must have a manager or supervisor who has previously received the ESGR Patriot Award. In a statement announcing the Above and Beyond Award, Crossmatch called the recognition “particularly poignant” noting its director of manufacturing Bryan King was presented with the ESGR Patriot Award in 2015.
