News & Events


On Friday, May 5th, our founder, Len Vanderhoven was presented a Patriot Award from a representative from the ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve) and an employee who is also an Army National Guard member for the state of Utah. National Guard and Reserve members have the opportunity to nominate any employer or supervisor for this award based on the support they’ve received and felt from an employer or supervisor in their civilian employment. The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support citizen warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.

“It was my intention by nominating Len for this award to show my appreciation for the flexibility and support I’ve received since being employed at Unique Communications. The attitude fostered by the leadership of the company has always been in support of military service and I’ve not felt pressured to put my employment at Unique Communications above my commitment to the National Guard. Due to our work with the military, I feel that the company as a whole has a great appreciation for those who have and continue to serve.” – Benjamin Rigby
