Year in Review

Fiscal Year 2018 Annual Review

In 2018, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve continued to promote supportive work environments for our National Guard and Reserve Service members through over 18,000 military and employer outreach events.

The overwhelming successes shown throughout 2018 were a direct result of the tremendous efforts from our team of nearly 3,750 volunteers, whose combined total of 218,942 hours equates to a $5.4 million return on investment. This, coupled with the positive resolution of 1,225 Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) cases, resulted in a $4.67 million cost avoidance to the Federal government, for a total savings of $10.07 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.
