Spectra Group (UK) Ltd are delighted to announce the award of The Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award in 2019.
The Covenant is a promise by the nation.
The Covenant is a promise from the nation, ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly.
Silver Award Holders:
- Demonstrate support for service personnel issues and employ at least one member of the Armed Forces community.
- Actively communicate and uphold a positive stance to their employees via established HR policies and procedures.
- Show flexibility towards annual training and mobilisation commitments of Reservist employees and support the employment of Cadet Instructors, Armed Forces Veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick) and military spouses/partners.
Simon Davies, CEO of Spectra Group, the industry-leading voice and data communications specialist, said:
“The Armed Forces Covenant is vitally important as we need to give our continued support to serving personnel, veterans and their families.
Providing support for ex-servicemen and women is a top priority for the Covenant. Amongst other acts, it seeks to provide affordable housing opportunities and employment for those who have served. Spectra Group is proud to support the Armed Forces Covenant.”
Spectra wholeheartedly believes in offering a sense of security to those who protect us, as Simon Davies elaborates:
“The Armed Forces are essential in keeping us safe. In these uncertain times, we must show that they are appreciated and supported – even after they decide it is time to return to civilian life.”
Spectra Group is committed to supporting the armed forces through its charity work and employs many veterans.
The Armed Forces Covenant acts as Spectra’s formal declaration of support for the Armed Forces. The organisation continues to support a variety of charities, including Soldiering On, SSAFA, Team Army and Team Ethos and will be sponsoring the SSAFA Race Day at Chepstow on November 20th.
