The seven Shared Technologies employees who are serving in the military in Iraq or elsewhere get a monthly reminder that they’re still members of the team at the Texas company.
Since January 2007, the 1,400-employee organization has sent a monthly care package containing donated canned food, music CDs, DVDs, underwear, socks and other goodies to each deployed employee.
And they send packages to the employees’ families. More than two dozen people have received packages so far.
In addition, the technology firm pays employees on their full salaries and continues their medical coverage. One employee was deployed for more than nine months, said Eileen Quilici, VP of HR.
