Employer Awards

ESGR sponsors an awards program designed to recognize employers for employment policies and practices that are supportive of their employees' participation in the National Guard and Reserve. All employer recognition and awards originate from nominations by individual Reserve Component members. Depending on the degree of support, the level of recognition may rise to the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.

For more information on each award, please visit the Employer Awards page.

Who is eligible?

Employers qualify for recognition when they practice personnel policies that support employee participation in the Guard and Reserve.
