CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that it has received the 2020 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest U.S. government honor bestowed to employers for support of National Guard and Reserve employees.
The Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) program publicly recognizes employers who provide exceptional support to their Guard and Reserve employees with the Freedom Award. ESGR selected CACI as one of this year’s 15 recipients from 2,623 nominations submitted by Guards and Reserve members, highlighting how their civilian employers went far beyond what the federal law requires to support them. Since 1996, only 295 employers have received the Freedom Award.
CACI’s longstanding support of veterans and the military is an integral part of the company’s culture. In 1971, CACI’s Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board Dr. J.P. London was the first CACI employee to serve as a commander in the Naval Reserves and was soon promoted to captain upon the conclusion of his service in 1983. Today, 37 percent of CACI employees are veterans, military spouses, transitioning service members, or serving National Guards and Reserve members. Veterans and these members of the military community add tremendous value to any organization, but their talent, integrity, sense of purpose, self-discipline, initiative, and commitment make them particularly well-suited for CACI.
John Mengucci, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are very honored to receive the Employer Support Freedom Award from the Department of Defense. We know the importance of supporting our National Guard and Reservist employees to ensure they can have a successful civilian career while also upholding their duties to our Armed Forces and country.”
CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, said, “At CACI, we greatly value veterans and members of the military community and pride ourselves on supporting those who have served our country. These dedicated men and women have the skills and experience needed to help our DoD customers complete their missions and make positive contributions to our workforce.”
