Under the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, employers support Defence personnel and encourage others to do the same. The scheme has three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold for organisations that pledge, demonstrate and advocate support for Defence and the Armed Forces community.
To achieve Silver, organisations must proactively demonstrate that the Armed Forces community are not unfairly disadvantaged as part of their recruitment policies. They must also actively ensure their workforce is aware of their positive policies towards Defence people issues for Reservists, Veterans, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, and spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces.
Mr Tony Fish, the MOD’s Regional Employer Engagement Director for North Wales said, “I am delighted that we can announce 21 Silver ERS 2022 award winners for Wales. Despite the pressures of the last few years, these companies have taken the time to ensure our Armed Forces community is supported.”
2022 marks the ninth year of the award scheme.
