Biometrics and identity firm Crossmatch has received the Department of Defense Employer Support for the Guard and Reserves (ESGR) Above and Beyond Award.

“We are honored to be selected by the Florida ESGR to receive this award and proud to support our military servicemen and women,” noted Richard Agostinelli, Crossmatch CEO. “Congratulations to all our employees who create a culture of support for their colleagues that serve in defense of our country.” 

Crossmatch has a long history of supporting the U.S. military as a provider of biometric identity management hardware, software and solutions. The award is particularly poignant as Bryan King, Crossmatch director of manufacturing, received the ESGR Patriot Award in 2015.

The Above and Beyond Award is presented by the ESGR State Committees to recognize U.S. employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act by providing their Guard and Reserve employees additional, non-mandated benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages, extended health benefits, and other similar benefits. The award is given in limited numbers by State Committees to employers who have had at least one of their supervisors or managers recognized with a Patriot Award, and who have signed or agree to sign an ESGR Statement of Support.
