As Memorial Day approaches, MB Financial President and CEO, Mitchell Feiger, signed a Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve. In coordination with the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), the pledge signals MB’s commitment to offering a supportive, welcoming work environment that values military service and the employment of all service members - active and reserve. The signing took place yesterday at the bank’s Rosemont Financial Center.
The Statement of Support affirms:
- MB Financial Bank fully recognizes, honors and enforces the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
- MB managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
- MB appreciates the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans.
- MB will continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, in crises and in war.
“MB is proud to join the many organizations and businesses that are already a part of this noble endeavor,” said Feiger. “This Statement of Support is one way we demonstrate our commitment to the men and women who have proudly served and sacrificed for our country. Furthermore, MB is in the process of chartering a Resource Group to serve the unique needs of veterans, service members, their families, and supporters through employment opportunities, training and retention of veteran talent.”
“Today supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units,” said Michael Holub, IL ESGR Vice-Chair. “By meeting the Statement of Support criteria, MB Financial Bank pledges to stand proudly with its Guard and Reserve employees who continue to answer their nation’s call to defend our way of life. Their personal sacrifices are essential to the strength of our nation.”
Holub added, “MB Financial Bank joins a cadre of Fortune 500 companies, state and federal agencies and thousands of America’s employers in demonstrating support for our armed forces. By signing the Statement of Support, MB is sending a clear message to their employees that while they are serving their country they do not have to worry about their civilian jobs.”
