JD2E is delighted to have received the Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award for our support towards the Armed Forces community.
Eighteen organisations in the East Midlands have received the award for 2022. To win an award, organisations must provide 10 extra paid days leave for Reservists and have supportive HR policies in place for veterans, Reserves, and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, as well as spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces.
Organisations must also advocate the benefits of supporting those within the Armed Forces community by encouraging others to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and engage in the Employer Recognition Scheme.
Jon, MD of JD2E, said: “Receiving the gold ERS award is an incredible privilege and great testament to the active part all our veterans and staff play in supporting our Armed Forces. We are incredibly proud of our Forces personnel, their families, and the essential roles they perform.”
Bruce Spencer, the Ministry of Defence’s Regional Employer Engagement Director for the East Midlands, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that so many local companies have been recognised with this Gold Award. It has been a difficult couple of years for businesses, and despite that, these organisations have gone above and beyond to ensure our Armed Forces community is supported. They should be very proud of this significant achievement.”
