One of 20 Companies Nationwide Recognized for Superior Support of Service Men and Women
WALTHAM, Mass. – May 29, 2012 – Actifio™, today announced that it was one of 20 companies nationally to be presented with the Patriot’s Award from the Employee Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) organization, an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. The award recognizes organizations for their support for National Guard and Reserve members in their role as service member and employee—both while overseas and upon returning to civilian life, and integrating back into the workplace after duty.
“The Patrick-Murray Administration is committed to ensuring military servicemen and women have access to the resources and benefits they have rightfully earned,” said Massachusetts Lieutenant State Governor Timothy Murray, Chair of the Governor’s Advisory Council on Veterans’ Services. “We applaud Actifio for receiving national recognition for their support of the National Guard and Reserve members. Through the leadership of Massachusetts businesses, we can work together to provide employment opportunities and other transitional services for our veterans.”
As part of the award program, National Guard and Reserve members across the U.S. are eligible to nominate their employers. Jeffrey Brown, an engineer at Actifio, was the service member who filed the winning nomination for Actifio based upon the company’s support while he was deployed and taking part in drills—including financial and job security benefits.
“Actifio is committed to our employees who serve in the armed forces by ensuring a smooth transition back into the workplace and showing support for them while they are fulfilling their obligations. “Said Actifio Founder and CEO Ash Ashutosh ”We are humbled that one of our employees has chosen to recognize this commitment by successfully nominating Actifio for a prestigious Patriot’s Award. “
Over the past year, Actifio has tripled its headcount and is actively recruiting to fulfill open positions at its Waltham headquarters.
