The ESGR has a national and local organizational structure to support our mission.  OKESGR is organized to support members of the Army Reserve, Oklahoma Army National Guard, Oklahoma Air National Guard, Navy, Airforce, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Reserve.
OKESGR works directly with Oklahoma employers, their employees, and communities to facilitate an understanding of, and appreciation for, the important role our reserve soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guardsmen, and airmen occupy in our national defense.
We encourage and assist employee participation in National Guard and Reserve training programs and active military duty without civilian job impediments of any kind, to include encouraging voluntary compliance with federal and state statutes governing employment and reemployment rights of Reserve component members.
The OKESGR also assists in preventing, resolving or reducing employer and/or employee problems and misunderstandings that result from National Guard or Reserve membership, training or duty requirements through information services and information mediation.  Further, we educate Guard and Reserve members regarding their obligations and responsibilities to employers.
OKESGR has a duty to promote civilian and military personnel practices that encourage membership in the National Guard and Reserve. 

Who We Are
The ESGR is a program of the Department of Defense
The National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) is an agency within the office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs.  It was established to promote cooperation and understanding between members of the Guard and Reserve and their employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee's military commitment.
