Supporting Military Members and Their Families is an Honor

We're honored that Wisconsin Employer Support ofthe Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense program, awarded the ESGR Seven Seals Award to our director of talent acquisition, Allison Osting, today.

The award recognizes Osting for extraordinary support of our military service member employees and their families who serve in the Wisconsin National Guard and Federal Reserve. 

“The ESGR Seven Seals Award was created to publicly recognize those outstanding citizens who provide meritorious leadership and initiative in direct support of their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said Michael Williams, Wisconsin ESGR State Chair. “Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of our Nation’s Guard and Reserve units.” 

Osting said she was accepting the award on behalf of our company and everyone involved in supporting active military member employees today: “Our employees are what make CUNA Mutual Group both a strong partner to our customers and a great place to work," she said. "Those who answer our nation's call to serve deserve both our full support and our gratitude.” 

ESGR seeks to foster a culture where all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. ESGR facilitates and promotes a cooperative culture of employer support for National Guard and Reserve service by developing and advocating mutually beneficial initiatives, recognizing outstanding employer support, increasing awareness of applicable laws and policies, resolving potential conflicts between employers and their service members, and acting as the employers’ principal advocate within DoD.
