Global service provider, Servest, has received an Armed Forces Covenant Silver Employer Recognition Scheme Award.
The ceremony, which took place on Thursday 23rd November at Fitzwilliam College in Cambridge saw Commodore Matt Harrison OBE Royal Navy, on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), award Servest with the prestigious accolade that celebrates the achievements of Servest in supporting the Defence community.
The Employer Recognition Scheme was launched in 2014 to recognise and reward UK employers for their support and commitment to Defence. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employers that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to Defence and the Armed Forces Community.
Since it was established in the UK, Servest has recognised the value that the Armed Forces community brings to the business and is hugely supportive of Veterans and their families, actively encouraging flexible working for military spouses.
Rob Legge, CEO of Servest Group has commented: “We’re incredibly proud to have been honoured with the ERS Silver Award for our commitment and support to defense personnel. There’s no question that the Armed Forces community possess a unique set of skills and experience, and it’s an honour to offer them the opportunity to put them into practice in new and exciting ways.”
Commodore Harrison, said: “After 30 years in the Royal Navy, I understand, more than most, how essential forces-friendly employers are. Those who serve, or have served, offer employers a wealth of knowledge and, in turn, many employers are prepared to offer a rewarding work environment. My thanks and congratulations go to all of the East Anglian employers for the work they have done and continue to do in supporting the Defence community.”
