ERS Silver Award Winners 2023!
We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award for 2023.
The award from the Ministry of Defence (MOD) is in recognition of the support the organisations give to the Armed Forces community.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme recognises those who demonstrate or advocate support to the Armed Forces community and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant – a pledge from the nation that those who serve or who have served and their families are treated fairly.
Silver winners must meet certain criteria, including: employing at least one individual from the Armed Forces community, actively ensuring that their workforce is aware of their positive policies, demonstrating support to mobilisations of Reservists and providing at least five days’ additional leave for training.
Commenting on the announcement of the awards, Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (Reserve & Cadets), Major General Marc Overton, said: “I would like to thank and congratulate the recipients of this year’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Awards. A silver award recognises the fantastic efforts of employers throughout the UK who have both elevated their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and provided actual benefits to the Armed Forces community.
“The winners should all be proud of their life-changing impact and fresh opportunities they are providing to our reservists, veterans and their families. The number of winners this year yet again shows that the Armed Forces family talent pool is also providing tangible business benefit.”
Broughton House will most certainly be aiming to achieve the ERS Gold Award for 2024 as we look to continue our support to not only the veterans within our care but with those who work under our employment.
