BALTIMORE– Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) is proud to join millions of Americans honoring our active and retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces this Veterans Day. As the nation honors the men and women who serve our country today, BGE offers special thanks to its more than 350 military members driving excellence in service and reliability as valued employees.
All active, retired and reservist military members employed at BGE received special pins to commemorate their service, along with letters from executive leadership at BGE and the Exelon Corporation, its parent company.
“Across all areas of our company, BGE is indebted to our active and retired servicemen and women,” said BGE CEO Calvin Butler Jr. “All of our team members are creative and passionate; however, leadership, collaboration and mission-focused work are particular areas of strength among those who have military experience. Their impact is clear through their performance here at BGE and most importantly, in our strength as a nation.”
Many of BGE’s military and military-supporting civilian employees are members of Exelon Militaries Actively Connected (EMAC) employee resource group (ERG). The ERG provides a support network for self-identifying employees with prior, active or reserve duty military service and civilian advocates.
EMAC is among several groups invited by Baltimore City Mayor Catherine Pugh to participate in a Veterans Day March to Baltimore’s War Memorial monument for a ceremony honoring veterans this morning beginning at 9:00 a.m.
“It is very gratifying to be part of a company with a very clear commitment to supporting veteran employees,” says EMAC Baltimore President and BGE Procurement Specialist Dawn Adams-Alexander. “Knowing that my ideas, experiences and perspectives as a veteran are a welcomed part of our company’s culture makes my work that much more valuable, and advocacy for fellow veterans that much more rewarding.”
The Military Times named Exelon Corporation among its top 50 ‘Best For Vets’ employers ranking in May, citing the company’s practices in recruiting military members, veteran-related policy and organizational culture for veteran support.
