Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) is a Department of Defense organization established in 1972. Its mission is to gain and maintain employer support that seeks to promote a culture in which all American Employers support and value the military service of their employees.
In this environment, civilian employers play a critical role in the defense of the nation by complying with existing employment laws protecting the rights of workers who serve in the Reserve component.
Calo was nominated by Missouri National Guardsman, Ross Reinhart to receive an ESGR Above and Beyond Award in recognition of extraordinary support of employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve. Ross joined Calo on New Years Eve in 2007 and is currently serving in Iraq.
On Friday, 8/14 Calo was honored at ESGRs annual awards banquet held in Jefferson City, Missouri. Employer recipients from the State of Missouri gathered for the affair. It was a beautiful evening and an honor to accept the award. This is the second year that Calo has received an award from ESGR and we will continue to support staff and families of those who serve in all branches of the military.
