Turnkey's co-founder, Michael Balda, participated in this Bosslift in April 2018 in support of Andrew Kavanah who had recently been deployed overseas.
Begun in the early 1980s, the ESGR Bosslift program gives public and private employers an opportunity to see citizen airmen on the job when they are away from their civilian occupations.
The Bosslift experience—which the ESGR bills as the “ride of a lifetime”—takes place throughout the U.S. and can range from mock convoy operations to video-simulated firefights, to flying to a briefing and Coast Guard installation.
Is this Bosslift, Mike Balda participated in a tour of the Air Force's C-130 operations in Hartford and then flew to the Blackhawk maintenance/operation center in Groton. Then off to Camp Niantic to experience simulated weapons training, a showing of personnel and equipment as well as military police canine demonstrations. Flights between each location were courtesy of Army pilots, crew chiefs and two Blackhawk helicopters.
The ESGR, a Department of Defense agency, offers the following tips for employers to support employees who serve in the National Guard or Reserves.
- Learn more about the role of the National Guard and Reserve by asking your employees what they do and how they fit into the big picture of national defense.
- Get to know your employees’ military commanders and supervisors; ask for advance notice of your employees’ annual military duty schedule to work out conflicts as soon as possible.
- Examine your personnel policies to see how they accommodate and support participation in the National Guard or Reserve.
- Encourage employee participation in the National Guard and Reserve and help them apply the training they receive from military duty.
- Discuss with your employees their service requirements before any problems arise and maintain open communication.
- Seek assistance from the ESGR. Ombudsmen serve as confidential, neutral liaisons for employers and employees seeking assistance or clarification regarding rights and responsibilities.
- Sign a Statement of Support for the National Guard and Reserve and display it prominently.
- Become an ESGR volunteer.
We are proud that one of our employees is dedicated to serving his country and we support him as he is deployed overseas....
