Patrick Parsons has been named as one of 25 employers to be awarded silver in the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).
The scheme recognises employers who actively support the Armed Forces community in their workplace and also encourage others to follow their lead. The award scheme, which attracts entries from companies in every part of the country and in the private and public sectors, has seen a rapid increase in participation since it launched in 2014.
Lieutenant General Richard Nugee, Chief of Defence People, said: “Congratulations to this year’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award winners who have turned their willingness to make a difference to our Armed Forces into effective programmes of support.
“Your actions mean that our veterans, the wounded injured and sick, our Reservists and their families are not disadvantaged by their military service and have the same opportunities as everyone else. Your commitment is highly valued and is at the heart of all that can be achieved in every part of the country through the Armed Forces Covenant.”
