Mercury Marine honored for supporting military veterans

Mercury Marine earned the ESGR Pro Patria award and also won the Above and Beyond Award in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Committee, an agency of the Department of Defense, presented Mercury Marine with two awards during the weekend.

Mercury earned the ESGR Pro Patria award, which is the highest-level award bestowed by a state ESGR committee and is given annually to a company that has "demonstrated the greatest support to Guard and Reserve employees."

Mercury Marine also won the Above and Beyond Award, which according to the ESGR website is given to companies that have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act by providing their Guard and Reserve employees with additional, non-mandated benefits.

The award is given to employers who have had at least one of their supervisors/managers recognized with a Patriot Award. Tim Pickart, a maintenance supervisor at Mercury Marine, was presented with the Patriot Award in March.

“Our commitment to providing opportunities for veterans is something we take very seriously at Mercury,” Mercury Marine president John Pfeifer said. “To be given two very prestigious awards speaks to the hard work, commitment and dedication by our employees and their supervisors. We will continue to promote and encourage veterans to work at Mercury Marine and will give them every opportunity to have a long and successful career at Mercury.”
