ESGR was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve component members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment.


We will gain and maintain employer support for Guard and Reserve service by recognizing outstanding support,increasing awareness of the law, and resolving conflict through mediation.


Develop and promote a culture in which all American employers support and value the military service of their employees.
