April 1, 2021

Boyer Commercial Construction, Inc. announced it was selected as a finalist for the 2021 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award (Freedom Award) by the Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Program. The Freedom Award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. government to employers for their extraordinary support of employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve.

Boyer Commercial Construction, Inc. is one of 30 finalists selected from 3,382 nominations submitted by National Guard and Reserve service members highlighting how their civilian employers go over and beyond what the federal law requires to support them. The Freedom Award was instituted in 1996 under the auspices of the ESGR program to recognize exceptional employer support. ESGR expects to announce the 2021 Freedom Award Recipients by late June.

“We are tremendously honored to be recognized by the Department of Defense as a finalist for the Employer Support Freedom Award,” said Brian Boyer, Boyer President. “We take great pride in supporting the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country as well as their families. We value their commitment to serving our nation and the positive impact they have on our mission as we expand our presence in the southeast supporting clients that include veteran, military and other federal organizations. We hope this recognition highlights the importance of employers standing with the Guard and Reserve in the communities they serve.”

Boyer Commercial Construction, Inc. is currently executing construction projects in support of the missions of the Dorn VA Medical Center in Columbia, SC, the National Cemetery Administration, and the USACE Charleston District’s Fort Jackson Phase II Cemetery Expansion. Over 30% of the Boyer workforce are military veterans representing prior service in the Army, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard.
