The Military Affairs Committee of the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce and the Joint Military Affairs Committee of the Delaware State and New Castle chambers of commerce have teamed up to present the 2017 Warrior Friendly Awards.
The awards are given to employers who support military service members in the workplace through both hiring practices and community engagement. They were presented at the Delaware Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Annual Awards Recognition Banquet August 1 at the Dover Downs.
The 2017 Warrior Friendly Award winner for the small business category (50 employees or less) is Mission BBQ. The winner for the large business category (more than 50 employees) is JPMorgan Chase.
“The support they provide goes a long way to allowing our men and women in the National Guard and Reserve to execute on their mission knowing their employer has their back and is there for their family,” said Gary Stockbridge, state chair of the Delaware ESGR and the Joint Military Affairs Committee. “They also recognize and support our veterans as they transition from military to professional careers.”
