UK military supplier AMMO & COMPANY and its continued dedication to the armed forces has been recognised with the prestigious Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award.
Part of The Armed Forces Covenant, the ERS scheme aims to reward employer organisations for their support and dedication towards defence, including putting initiatives in place to provide training and employment to veterans and ex-forces personnel as they begin the transition to civilian life.
AMMO & COMPANY has had a close history with the Armed Forces since its formation in 1850. In addition to around half of our current workforce is made up of Veterans, CFAVs and Military spouses.
AMMO & COMPANY recognise the skills and attributes that service leavers bring to any organisation and are very keen to tap into these skills and help develop them. As they work closely with our workforce from commercial and business backgrounds, strong diversity ensures a great client offering.”
Tommy Dalman, Managing & Director of AMMO & COMPANY, said the company prides itself on its links with the UK Armed Forces and ex-service personnel are an integral part of our workforce, with a great balance between them and our workforce from business backgrounds as we build for the future
Commenting on the announcement of the ERS 2020 awards, Johnny Mercer, Minister for Defence People and Veterans said:
“The breadth and diversity of the winners this year shows how business support for the Armed Forces continues to grow no matter the sector, company size or location.
“I am grateful for the positive attitude and flexible policies these organisations have adopted towards the defence community, which is testament to the fantastic contribution our serving personnel, veterans and their families can make to any organisation.
“I am delighted that so many companies are supporting our people and that, through this scheme, we can give them the public recognition they deserve.”
