Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve

The national ESGR website states, "Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) is a Department of Defense (DoD) office that develops and promotes supportive work environments for service members in the Reserve Components through outreach, recognition, and educational opportunities that increase awareness of applicable laws and resolves employer conflicts between the service members and their employers."

The goals of the organization are:

  1. Educate customers and stakeholders
  2. Advocate within DOD for National Guard and Reserve employers  
  3. Continually refine the ESGR organization for relevancy, effectiveness, and efficiency
  4. Enhance consistent general population brand awareness and visibility of ESGR nationwide
  5. Enhance awareness and value of the Employment Initiative Program to both the employers and members of the Guard and    Reserve
