Veteran’s Employer of the Year Award
The California Employer Advisory Council (CEAC) Veterans Employer of the
Year Awards recognize employers who consistently demonstrate positive policies
toward U.S. veterans in hiring and promotion, as well as through employee
retention efforts, ongoing training, and benefits.
The Seven Seals Award is the broadest and most inclusive award given by
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. The Seven Seals Award is in recognition
of significant individual or organizational achievement, initiative, or
support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission.
ESGR, a Department of Defense office, was established in 1972 to promote
cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members
and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts
arising from an employee's military commitment.
ESGR has served our country for more than 40 years, fostering a culture
in which all employers support and value the employment and military service
of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. These
citizen warriors could not defend and protect us at home and abroad without
the continued promise of meaningful civilian employment for themselves and
their families. ESGR has continued to adapt to meet the needs of Reserve
Component members, their families and America’s employers by joining
forces with a network of other national, state and local government and
professional trade organizations as together, We All Serve!
