Welcome to the Rhode Island Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (RIESGR) web page. Whether you are an employer, military member, or ESGR committee member you will find this page full of useful information to assist you in building and maintaining a great relationship between you, our Rhode Island employers, and your most precious asset, your Guard and Reserve employees.
The Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve is an all volunteer Department of Defense organization within the Secretary of Defense’s office. The mission of the ESGR is to gain and maintain support from all public and private employers for the men and women of the National Guard and Reserve. We provide free education, consultation, and if necessary, mediation for employers of Guard and Reserve employees. ESGR’s goal is to support America’s employers who share their employees with the nation to ensure our national security. As we carry out our mission here in Rhode Island, it is beneficial to all of us to have a comprehensive location to find key resources for our mutual benefit.
I am proud to be Chair of the Rhode Island Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve and I hope you will consider becoming a member of this proud organization.
Thank you for all you do for our Guard and Reserve!
