Thanking Your Employer
There are many ways to acknowledge the support of your employer and to thank them for their efforts.
First, and most important of all, is to physically say thank you and acknowledge them on a personal level. This could be followed up with a more formal letter to HR or a line manager. These gestures of apprectaion go a long way to ensure a positive working relationship between you, your employer, and the NZDF.
Sample letters can be found on the Hub (external link) DESC group.
Going That Extra Mile
For larger gestures DESC and your Regional Liason Officers can offer unique experiences for supportive employers through Operation Mōhiohio and the recognition awards.
Operation Mōhiohio gives employers the chance to experience Defence People in action and learn about what it takes to be a reservist. Invite your employer to an Op Mōhiohio!
If you believe that your employer has gone above and beyond, then nominating them for an award should be your next move.
