Superior Energy Services Nominated for Employer Support Freedom Award

Harvey, La., (March 24, 2008) — Superior Energy Services has been nominated for the 2008 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest honor given to employers by the U.S. Government, which recognizes employers who provide outstanding support for military employees.

More than 2,000 members of the National Guard and Reserves and their families nominated their employers for their support of military employees. A national selection committee will chose up to 15 winners based on criteria such as pay policies, benefits and leave, family support, deployed member support and personalized service. The winners will be recognized at the 13th annual Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award ceremony on September 18 in Washington, D.C.

“I nominated Superior because of the unbelievable way they treated me when I was recalled back into active service for a deployment to Iraq," said Chris Cannon, Superior Energy Services Recruiting Manager and a Captain in the United States Marine Corps. "This company bent over backward to let me know they appreciated my service. They even flew a Marine Corps flag at our corporate office to show their support of me when I was recalled. It really touched me to work for a company that supported me that much. I want other people out there to know what a great company Superior is to work for and how important people are to them.”

This award began in 1996 under the National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense agency meant to gain and maintain employer support for Guard and Reserve service by recognizing outstanding support, increasing awareness of the law and resolving conflicts through informal mediation.

“We are honored by this nomination," said Ken Blanchard, Superior President and Chief Operating Officer. "We sincerely appreciate our military employees and recognize the importance of their commitment to this country and this company.”
