WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This Veterans Day, Oasis Outsourcing, one of the nation's premier Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs), is announcing a commitment to its employees who are members of the Guard and Reserve.
Through Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense program established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers, Oasis is signing a Statement of Support for employee Guard and Reserve members. In the statement, Oasis promises to comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, provide its managers and supervisors with the tools to manage employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve, and make a general commitment to supporting members of the Guard and Reserve. This program is spearheaded by Oasis Outsourcing's Chief Operating Officer Kelley Castell, who served on active duty in the U.S. Navy and continues to serve in the U.S. Navy Reserve. "Aside from it being one of the nation's most widely respected Professional Employer Organizations, one of the key reasons I joined Oasis was its patriotic spirit and willingness to increase its support for members of the Guard and Reserve," Castell said. "This is a cause that is very close to me as a Navy Reservist, and I look forward to implementing additional programs in support of our nation's service members."
