The employers being announced today are companies with headquarters or a significant base of operations within the Greater London area. They represent a range of sectors including the NHS, technology, security, shipping and financial industries.
The MOD’s Employer Recognition Scheme acknowledges those organisations who actively demonstrate support to the Armed Forces Community. Employers have won awards for delivering forces-friendly initiatives in the workplace, including employing veterans and supporting Reservists and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers by providing at least 5 days additional paid/unpaid leave.
Commenting on the announcement of the 2019 Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards, Defence Secretary, Ben Wallace said:
“These awards recognise the outstanding support for our armed forces from employers across Britain and I would like to thank and congratulate each and every one.
“Regardless of size, location or sector, employing ex-forces personnel is good for business and this year we have doubled the number of awards in recognition of the fantastic support they give.”
Minister for Defence People and Veterans Johnny Mercer said:
“Veterans make a huge contribution to businesses across the country and it’s fantastic to see a record breaking number of organisations recognised for their support.
“We’re working closely with businesses to help them further understand the huge value that veterans, reservists and military spouses can bring to their organisation.”
Congratulations to the 2019 Silver Award winners.
