Support for the Guard and Reserve
In 2012, GE renewed its statement of support with the Employers Support for the Guard and Reserve to ensure GE’s reservists and their families have our utmost support. Additionally, in 2009 GE signed a memorandum of agreement with the U.S. Army Reserve to guarantee priority consideration for job interviews for all qualified participating soldiers no later than 30 days after completing military occupational specialty training. GE benefits include a salary differential that ensures GE employees called to active duty maintain the same salary level as when they were working at GE for up to 36 months of deployment. Healthcare benefits for dependents allow continued healthcare coverage for families of GE employees who are deployed.
