Following our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant, we’re proud to report that we’ve been recognised with a Bronze award.
Working with members of the Armed Forces every day, we understand the sacrifices made by serving personnel, veterans and their families. That’s why we signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant, to pledge our ongoing support in exchange for their invaluable contributions to our country.
The Covenant aims to encourage the whole of society to recognise the valuable contribution of those who have performed military duty. We agree that members of the Naval Service, the Army and the Royal Air Force, together with their families, deserve respect, support and fair treatment.
Part of our commitment is to seek to support the employment of veterans young and old – 15% of our workforce are now ex-Forces personnel.
We’re delighted to announce that the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERC), which encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same, has recognised our contribution with a Bronze award.
Holders of the Bronze award have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and have been seen to “promote being Armed Forces-friendly and are open to employing reservists, Armed Forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.”
At JNR Group, we’re incredibly proud to receive this recognition and we’ll certainly be going for gold in our efforts to support the Armed Forces community in any way we can.
