UPMC wins Patriotic Employer Award

The National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve last month presented UPMC with the Patriotic Employer Award for contributing to national security and supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force.

UPMC was recognized particularly for supporting its employees who are active service members. Since 2002, its enhanced military leave policy has aided UPMC employees in the military and is designed to benefit employees who are called to active duty. Eligible employees are paid the difference between their military pay and UPMC base wage to a maximum payment of $5,000 per month for up to five years of active duty service. In the last five years, UPMC provided more than $1.5 million in enhanced pay to employees under this policy.
