Convergint Technologies was built on a foundation of 10 Values & Beliefs that embrace integrity, community, leadership, and more. Convergint is deeply committed to supporting and hiring veterans & reservists and has signed an agreement with the United States Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). At the ESGR signing ceremony, Jesse Shamrock, Chicago Warehouse Lead and Army veteran, shared his story about how Convergint’s Values & Beliefs aligned with his own and became a driving force to join Convergint in 2017. Once a part of the team, he found himself surrounded by many veterans who felt the same. Watch below as he shares his perspective.
Many Convergint veterans and reservists, as well as ESGR volunteers, came to show their support for the partnership of Convergint and ESGR. Convergint speakers included Jesse Shamrock, Warehouse Lead and Army veteran, and Kevin Prior, Convergint’s General Manager of Leveraged Services and Navy veteran. Speakers for ESGR included Bruce Townsend, Chief of Employer Engagement for ESGR, and Craig McKinley, ESGR National Chair, retired USAF Four-Star General, and former member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. CEO Ken Lochiatto signed an agreement, solidifying Convergint’s commitment to promote a cooperative culture of employer support for the National Guard and Reserve and will develop mutually beneficial initiatives.
ESGR, a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment. ESGR is supported by a network of more than 3,750 volunteers in 54 committees located across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam-CNMI (Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands), Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
