Stainless Tank & Equipment (STE) of Beloit has received three awards on behalf of their support of National Guard and Reserves employees.
The Patriot Award, the Above and Beyond Award and the Pro Patria Award were given by Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).
STE was nominated for the awards by an employee serving in the National Guard and Reserves.
The Above and Beyond Award was presented to STE at an awards ceremony on April 17.
The award was presented by ESGR State Committees to recognize employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) by providing their National Guard and Reserve employees with additional, non-mandated benefits.
There are only 1,562 awards given each year, and STE was one of nine recipients for the state of Wisconsin.
“The award was a complete surprise for us,” said Heidi Lundeen, Human Resource Manager for STE, adding that she was honored by the three awards.
STE designs and produces certified stainless steel ASME tanks for food grade, sanitary and chemical over-the-road transportation.
