BJC’s Veterans Connection Members Network, Get News

During the BJC Veterans Connection networking social in late April, group members discussed their service and how they can work together to support BJC’s mission and one another. They were also the first to hear that BJC will receive the Missouri Employment Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Award for supporting team members who are in the National Guard and Reserve. 

“This award will display BJC’s commitment to backing our military brothers and sisters who manage two careers — one at BJC and one for the U.S. military,” says Troy Compardo, BJC supply chain regional operations director and Veterans Connection co-sponsor. “With awards like this one, BJC sets itself apart for the value we place on guard members, reservists and veterans who work here and in the communities we serve.”

Compardo thanked HR senior leadership, including BJC vice president of Total Rewards and HR operations Sherry Ward, who continues to partner with him to recognize more opportunities for determining how BJC honors military veterans.

Attendees brainstormed ideas for improving Veterans Connection members’ engagement and veteran retention, how they can work together to recruit veterans to join the organization, and ideas for community involvement. 

A planning committee has been formed to help guide the group’s goals and activities for the year. The ESGR Award will be one of many accomplishments the group plans to celebrate.
