NEC recognised for support of Aussie defence reservists

NEC Australia has been awarded a special employer support award for its support of Australia’s Defence Force Reservists.

NEC’s support for the reservists was recognised by the Victoria Defence Reserves Support Council with the award of the 2016 Employer Support Award (Large Private Business category).

The award recognises NEC Australia as a “reservist-friendly” organisation due to its provision of continued and significant support to reservist employees.

NEC Australia employee, Lance Corporal Dan Lydford, nominated NEC for of its “unwavering support, commitment, and accommodating manner” for his training and operational requirements. NEC Australia was also credited for supporting Lance Corporal Lydford’s duties at short notice.

“NEC Australia is extremely proud of our employees who dedicate time and energy to such a vital activity as protecting Australia’s defence and security interests. We consider it an honour to support our reservists when they’re called upon to serve the nation and, equally importantly, to assist them as they return to work,” said Mike Barber, chief operating officer NEC Australia.  

“We understand that reservists face the extra pressure of balancing service with the usual life and work commitments and humbly accept this award for the support we provide Mr Lydford and other employees with dual responsibilities.”

Colin Radford, DRSC Victoria State Chair, said, “Employers such as NEC understand that you don’t have to wear a uniform to serve your country. By supporting their reservists to serve and return to their civilian employment, they are making a huge contribution and getting a skilled, accomplished leader in the bargain.”
