RECOGNIZED WITH ABOVE AND BEYOND AWARD SUPPORT THOSE WHO
SERVE IN THE GUARD OR RESERVE
Illinois Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR),
a Department of Defense (DoD) office, announced that Century
Moving – an agent for Bekins Van Lines, was honored with an
Above and Beyond Award in recognition of extraordinary
support of one of its employees who serves in the Army
Reserve. Mr. Bob Fleming accepted the award from Michael
Holub, Illinois ESGR Vice-Chair, on behalf of Century
“The ESGR Above and Beyond Award was created by ESGR to
publicly recognize American employers like Century Moving,
who provide extraordinary patriotic support and cooperation
to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before
them, have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said
Holub. “Supportive employers like Century Moving are
critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the
nation’s Guard and Reserve units.”
Century Moving now joins with
thousands of American employers who have reviewed and
amended their current human resources policies to ensure
compliance with the Uniformed Services Employment and
Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). Many employers provide
support far above and beyond that which is expected or
required under USERRA with pay differential to offset the
loss of wages, and extension of health care benefits which
complement coverage provided by the military when their
employees are mobilized.
Tracey Collins, a Colonel in the
U.S. Army Reserve, is a 15-year employee of Century Moving
and nominated Bob Fleming and Century Moving. “We are
honored to have been nominated for this award by Tracey,”
said Fleming. “She is a valuable member of the Century

Century moves replica of
original Wright Brother's plane.
Century Moving recently took on the very challenging
task of moving a full size working replica of the
historic Wright Brothers Airplane.
We transported it for
several parades and community events in the Chicago area
and then delivered it to the Museum of Science and
Industry where it now hangs above the main floor.
This is just one example of our expertise, and another
reason that Century Moving is the obvious choice to be
your moving company.
