#WithGlowingHearts thanks employers who support Reservists

As Canada works to overcome the pandemic challenges, #Reservists are being mobilized to assist. With many thanks to ‪#Employers who support them to do important work on behalf of us all. Employers also have access to tools for support such as “With Glowing Hearts” Reservist Support Program & CERP (Compensation for Employers of Reservist Program). When Employers support Reservists, they too serve our country. Thank you! @CFLCCA ‪#CAF.

Reservists play an integral role in the companies and organizations they work for outside of their military careers.  Here are three interviews that were conducted in Edmonton in 2019. They showcase the way employers and reservists support each other.  If you’re an employer who is considering hiring a Reservist, these videos will provide some real world insights from both employers and reservists.

Here is an interview with Sean Pascek, Vice President with Prostar Energy/Well Service about the benefits his company has gained from employing reservist Master Corporal Wolfgang Brettner as their company’s Safety Manager. Interview was conducted in summer of 2019

Meet Kevin MacLeod, interviewed here in his role as Managing Senior Principal of Stantec Geomatix and Captain Vikesh Malhi, a reservist and Project Manager with Stantec.  Interview was conducted in summer of 2019.

Cory Stockley, Dispatch Manager with Tag Logistics and Master Warrant Officer Andrew Gordey discuss their relationship and the mutual benefits of having a reservist on staff.

About the Canadian Forces Liaison Council:  The Canadian Forces Liaison Council (CFLC) is a national organization comprised of over 200 senior executives and community leaders within the private and public sectors who volunteer their time to encourage employer/educator support for the Reserve Force.

We work in partnership with the Department of National Defence to engage employers, educational institutions and other organizations to emphasise how valuable reserve service is to Canadian communities and the defence of Canada. The CFLC’s objective is to raise awareness among organizations and show how they can benefit by employing reservists and take advantage of the special leadership and skills training reservists receive.

We aim to educate employers of the special skills that reservists have to enable them to fulfill their military obligations and attend training courses. To do this, the Council has worked with the Defence Team to develop and deliver a wide range of effective employer support programs such as ExecuTreks. Connecting to the business community, these programs inform, engage, educate, recognize and support employers and their reservist employees.

CFLC also delivers provincial and national awards programs to recognize employers and educational institutions who demonstrate, above and beyond, support of Reservists and the Canadian Reserve Force. The Reserves form a critical component of Canada’s Defence Strategy – Strong, Secure, Engaged – and are prepared to answer the demand as our military is increasingly called to action.
