Nine organisations in the HRFCA-area have been awarded the prestigious Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award.

The award from the Ministry of Defence is in recognition of the support the organisations give to the Armed Forces community.

The winners in the HRFCA-area are:

BASICS Scotland

Falkirk Council*

Fife Medical Group

Horizon Security Solutions

Louise Worrall Wealth Management

Meldrum Joinery & Building Services

Moray Digital

NHS Highland*

Securitay Limited

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme recognises those who demonstrate or advocate support to the Armed Forces community and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant – a pledge from the nation that those who serve or who have served and their families are treated fairly.

Silver Award winners must meet certain criteria, including: employing at least one individual from the armed forces community, actively ensuring that their workforce is aware of their positive policies, demonstrating support to mobilisations of reservists and providing at least five days’ additional leave for training.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be changes made to how the award certificates are presented. However, we are hoping to hand these over in person to each individual organisation. Keep an eye on our social media channels for news and images from each presentation.
