Takeda Receives Award for Supporting Employees Who Serve In Military
Date:3/17/2017

DEERFIELD, Ill., March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. received an award from the Illinois Committee of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) during a recent ceremony at the Naval Station Great Lakes in Waukegan, Illinois to recognize the company for its support of employees involved in the National Guard and Reserve. In addition, Takeda employee Scott Maxson also received an individual award from ESGR based on the nomination of an employee reservist.

The recognition program is led by the ESGR, an organization under the U.S. Department of Defense. ESGR was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between employers and its civilian employees regarding an employee's military commitment. Takeda earned the Pro Patria Award, the highest recognition given by the U.S. government to an employer 'who demonstrates exceptional support for national defense by adopting personnel policies that make it easier' for employees to participate in the National Guard and Reserve.

"We're proud of the supportive environment we have established for our reservists and military veterans. This award recognizes our commitment to military-connected employees and their families, which are only one of the many employee groups supported by Takeda's diverse programs and policies," said Laurene Giagnorio, senior vice president, human resources and administration, Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc.

Takeda has received several consecutive workplace awards for its outstanding employee programs, Giagnorio explains. One of those programs includes sponsoring six employee resource groups (ERGs), which help build a more supportive and inclusive culture. The ERG for military-connected employees, called Supporting Troops and Inspiring Veteran Engagement (STRIVE), is among the company's largest ERG with over 200 members.

Takeda's Scott Maxson, manager of security and intelligence, also was recognized at the ceremony and received the Patriot Award for his continued support of a team member's military service commitment, including a recent month-long assignment as part of his Navy Reservist status.
