Georgia Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense office, awarded Matthew Singley of Orion Technology Services on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 in recognition of extraordinary support of his employee serving in the National Guard and Reserve.
Orion was nominated for the award by Sergeant Matthew Grantham, with the Army National Guard. In his nomination, Grantham said “Orion has been supportive of my role in the Army National Guard and is always quick to find coverage when I am placed on orders. They have never treated my service as a burden but instead seen the opportunity of employing me as an enhancement to the team.”
The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors 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.
“The Military trains veterans across all areas of practical business, bringing strong discipline and teamwork skills, and an unparalleled “can do” attitude to Orion,” said Singley. “We are honored to be recognized for being able to provide another venue of support for those who have and continue to protect our country.”
