Boris Nejikovsky

Ensco President Boris Nejikovsky has received the “Service Member Patriot Award” from the Defense Department‘s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program for supporting a member of the U.S. Air Force Reserve.

The company said Wednesday Nejikovsky was nominated by Scott Goldstein, an Air Force reservist and Ensco’s chief strategy and technology officer.

Goldstein, an Air Force Reserve brigadier general and mobilization assistant, took five weeks off from Ensco to serve on an overseas tour last year.

“Boris supports my service in the Air Force Reserve and leads a company culture that is supportive of all our reservists and veterans,” said Goldstein.

DoD’s ESGR program gives the Patriot Award to supervisors and executives who provided direct support to the nominating service members and their families.

The award recognizes employers’ efforts to assist citizen warriors through benefits such as flexible schedules, time off before and after deployment, family support and leaves of absence.

ESGR aims to boost cooperation between Reserve service members and civilian employers to address issues related to an employee’s military commitment.
