NSW employers recognised for support of Defence Reservists

The Defence Reserves Support Council has awarded deserving bosses at their annual Employer Support Awards.

The winners were the Leichardt Park Aquatic Centre (not for profit sector), Sydney Trains/NSW Trainlink (public sector), Westpac Bank (private sector large business) and University of Notre Dame and Charles Sturt University (supportive education sector).

Defence Reserves Support Council acting state chairman James Digges said the event highlighted the strong support employers across NSW were giving to ADF Reservists.

"Without the support of their employers, these Reservists and many others across the Defence Force would be unable to fulfil their Reserve duty that is vital to the success of the Australian Defence Force," Digges said. 

Rear Admiral Bruce Kafer, head of the ADF Reserve and Youth Division, said those employers acknowledged at the awards ceremony had all been nominated by their employees.

"It is a huge testament to these businesses to be acknowledged by their staff members as an employer of choice," RADM Kafer said.

"On top of this, for the first time we are recognising employers in the education sector with the Education Award. These education institutions are acknowledged for their support to both employees and students who are carrying out ADF Reserve duty."

The awards ceremony provided an opportunity for employers to learn more about the programs offered by Defence Reserves Support, to gain a better understanding of the many roles Reservists undertake in the Australian Defence Force, and to learn how their Reservists’ military skills are transferable to their civilian workplaces.
