Year in Review

Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Review

In 2019, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve continued to promote supportive work environments for our National Guard and Reserve Service members through over 3,800 military and employer outreach events.

The overwhelming successes shown throughout 2019 were a direct result of the tremendous efforts from our team of more than 3,680 volunteers, whose combined total of 205,904 hours equates to a $5.2 million return on investment. This, coupled with the positive resolution of 1,137 Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) cases, resulted in a $4.33 million cost avoidance to the Federal government, for a total savings of $9.57 million. These results are a testament to our volunteers, supportive employers, ESGR staff, and the men and women who proudly serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
