ESGR in the News


MARQUETTE, Mich. – Flagstar Bank branches in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and northern Wisconsin signed the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Statement of Support Nov. 3.

Within this region, Flagstar Bank has 17 locations. In September, a supervisor at a Marquette branch was awarded with the ESGR Patriot Award. National Guard or Reserve members, or their spouses, are able to nominate an individual supervisor or manager for the Patriot Award. These bosses are awarded for providing support directly to the Service member and/or their family. Typically, this support is shown through work schedule flexibility, time off prior to and after a deployment, helping and caring for a Service member's family, and granting leaves of absence if necessary.

The Statement of Support is the foundation of ESGR. The goal of ESGR is to advocate, recognize, inform, and mediate between employers and Guard and Reserve Service members. By signing a Statement of Support, an employer joins thousands of other employers across the nation that proudly and publicly support Guard and Reserve employees.
