  5 Star Employer

Employer Support of the Guard (ESGR), an agency of the United States Department of Defense, recognizes employers who demonstrate—quietly or overtly—their support of the National Guard and the Military Reserves. ESGR was chartered in 1972 and is an information resource for employers and members of the National Guard and Reserve. ESGR minimizes conflicts between military duties and civilian career responsibilities. Today almost half of the nation's military strength resides in the National Guard and Reserve.

Five levels of support are recognized. One-Star employers validate their support of the Guard and Reserve and agree to follow the guidelines of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). Other requirements relate to increased levels of support: 2-stars, 3-stars, and four stars. Five star employers, relatively unusual, become overt advocates as well as quiet supporters.

Roger E. Herman, Chief Executive Officer of The Herman Group, serves as President of Employers United for a Stronger America. This not-for-profit organization was formed to support ESGR and function as a civilian connection for employers to demonstrate their appreciation for the brave civilians who signed up to learn, grow, build skills, and defend their country whenever and wherever necessary.

Employers who support these dedicated men and women in uniform are also supporting our country and the cause of freedom throughout the world. We salute all those who serve in the reserve component of our Armed Forces, as well as the thousands of citizens who serve in uniform as their career.

The Herman Group is proud to be recognized as a Five Star employer by ESGR.
