Background: Comcast NBCUniversal is on track to hire more than 10,000 members of the military community by the end of this year, meeting the goal of a three-year hiring commitment made in May 2015. As part of that pledge, military community employees are able to utilize a suite of benefits specific to their needs; for National Guard and Reserve members, this includes 15 days paid time off annually for their military training in addition to their normal paid time off.
Additionally, if they are called to active duty, the company matches the difference between their military base pay and their Comcast salary, and provides continued benefits (health, 401(k), etc.) for up to three years.
Recently, U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced that Comcast NBCUniversal was among the 15 recipients of the 2017 Secretary of Defense Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) “Freedom Award,” the highest honor the Department of Defense awards to employers for support of their National Guard and Reserve employees.
