C.H. Robinson, one of the largest non-asset based third party logistics (3PL) companies in the world, has received the "Seven Seals" and three "Patriot" awards from the State of Minnesota for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).
In accepting the award on behalf of the Minneapolis, Minn.-based C.H. Robinson, Jim Larsen, v.p., called the award "a tremendous honor" that reflects the pride the entire organization has for its "colleagues who make sacrifices for their fellow citizens and are committed to contributing to the betterment of our country. Our company culture places a lot of importance on service to community, and our employees that serve in the Guard and Reserve have earned our highest support and respect."
The Seven Seals award is given in recognition of a significant individual or organization for taking a leadership role that promotes the mission of ESGR, while the Patriot award recognizes supportive employers and is given out on behalf of the United States Department of Defense.
Captain Les Hoffman, C.H. Robinson's Minneapolis National Accounts (MiNA), account manager, nominated the company and individuals for the awards. Hoffman has been with C.H. Robinson for over a year and has been involved with the Armed Services for over nine years. Hoffman has been called back to active duty for the Armed Services and will be leaving in December.
Fred Willman, C.H. Robinson's MiNA branch manager, Mike Neitzel, MiNA account development manager, and Matt Babcock, MiNA special handling manager, also each received a Patriot award in recognition of their support to employees who are involved in the National Guard or Reserve.
