ESGR was established in 1972 to develop and maintain employer support for Guard and Reserve service. ESGR advocates relevant initiatives, recognizes outstanding support, increases awareness of applicable laws, and resolves conflict between service members and employers. Paramount to ESGR’s mission is encouraging employment of Guardsmen and Reservists who bring integrity, global perspective and proven leadership to the civilian workforce.

ESGR operates through a network of thousands of volunteers nationwide and in all state field offices. ESGR conducts volunteer activities, like employer outreach and awards presentations, military education briefs, and mediation. ESGR dedicated volunteers come from all walks of life. They are business executives, military spouses, civic leaders, military personnel, and patriotic citizens. ESGR volunteers seek to improve the employer relations of our brave men and women that place themselves in harm’s way, leave their families, and put their careers on hold as they preserve our way of life.

As the 1.3 million members of the National Guard and Reserve continue to perform an increasing number of unique missions that require extraordinary actions on the part of everyday citizens, ESGR will continue to be the informational agency for the employers of citizen warriors.
