PITTSBURGH, PA – At an evening ceremony at Pittsburgh’s Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum, Oberg was recently presented with the distinguished Seven Seals Award. The award is given at the discretion of the PA Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) chairman to recognize the efforts by a citizen, business or organization whose supportive actions have benefitted all of the Reserve Components in a significant manner and demonstrates outstanding support, commitment and and extreme patriotism to the United States military. While not a final recipient of the organization’s Freedom Award, Oberg Industries was among a very select handful of regional companies nominated for the ESGR distinction. Presented annually to only 15 of the country’s most supportive employers, The Freedom Award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their support of their employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
Oberg is honored to receive such recognition and proudly supports its veteran workers. The company has recently partnered with the newly formed Pittsburgh Veteran Employer Coalition, funded by the Heinz Foundation and made up of seven other regional employers including Highmark, Giant Eagle, Pitt Ohio and PNC Financial Services, to collectively promote hiring and retention of veteran talent, and minimize underemployment, by sharing data that will better match available positions to their military experiences.
