TLS are delighted to announce that we have been successful in earning the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award.
The scheme encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme also encompasses employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
Having received the Silver Award, we have successfully demonstrated:
- support for service personnel issues and employed at least one member of the armed forces community
- actively maintaining a positive stance to our employees via established HR policies and procedures
- flexibility towards annual training commitments and mobilisation of reservist employees and support the employment of cadet instructors, armed forces veterans (including wounded, injured and sick) and military spouses/partners
- The signing of the Armed Forces Covenant and employed at least one individual from the covenant category
TLS will be presented the award at a celebration dinner at Burleigh Court in Loughborough on Thursday 9th November.
