New Jersey Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve

(609) 562-0156/3760

The New Jersey Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, is a Department of Defense volunteer organization that provides free education, consultation, and if necessary, mediation for employers of Guard and Reserve employees. ESGR’s goal is to support New Jersey’s employers who share their employees with the Department of Defense to ensure our national security.

The mission is to gain and maintain support of all public and private employers for the men and women of the National Guard and Reserve as defined by demonstrated employer commitment to employee military service.

National Guard and Reserve forces today total over 1 million service members and represent approximately 48 percent of total military force. Every day around the globe, thousands of men and women in uniform risk their lives and make great sacrifices to defend our national interests. And, increasingly, members of the National Guard and Reserve forces are serving extended tours away from their homes, families and jobs.

The NJESGR committee is made up of volunteer business executives, civic leaders, educators, retired and active military personnel, and concerned citizens dedicated to preventing and resolving those employer/employee conflicts that directly impact the retention of our reserve component Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen. The 130 plus volunteers, with support from the National Headquarters based in Arlington, Va., initiate employer support and education programs including a speakers bureau, ombudsman program, visits to training sites, and through our awards program, recognition of employers whose policies support or encourage participation in the National Guard and Reserve.
