JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Black Knight Financial Services, Inc. (NYSE:BKFS) was presented with an Above and Beyond Award by the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (“ESGR”), a U.S. Department of Defense program, the company announced today. The Above and Beyond Award is presented by ESGR State Committees to recognize employers at the local level 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 additional, non-mandated benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages and extended health benefits. The award is given in limited numbers by State Committees to employers that have had at least one supervisor or manager recognized with a Patriot Award, and that have signed or agreed to sign an ESGR Statement of Support.
Wage continuation payments for the first six months of active military service for all full-time employees who are called up to active duty in either the Reserves or the National Guard is an example of the additional, non-mandated benefits that Black Knight offers.
“We are proud of our commitment to those who serve in defense of our country, and our company benefits from the unique training and leadership skills that men and women of the Guard and Reserve have developed during their tenure with the Armed Forces,” said Black Knight President and CEO Tom Sanzone. “Black Knight is a military-friendly company with a long history of hiring veterans, and we remain committed to helping these dedicated professionals succeed in the civilian workforce.”
Ken Morgan, a vice president at Black Knight and a veteran who has served as a captain in the U.S. Army Reserve for nearly 21 years, accepted the award on the company’s behalf at a ceremony in Tampa.
