The Defence Employer Recongition Scheme is tiered in bronze, silver and gold levels and is presented to organisations that pledge, demonstrate and advocate support to defence and the armed forces community and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC).
Following all of their hard work and efforts, the team at Allan Webb took the opportunity to partake in a socially distanced celebratation to commemorate this prestigious award.
Investment and support of our armed forces has been incredibly important to the ethos of Allan Webb over our 60 year history and will continue to be vital in our future. From Director level downwards, our Veterans, Reservists and partners of service men and women currently make up some 20% of our workforce; with each and every one of them playing such an integral role in the success of Allan Webb today. It is because of this that we place the AFC Award in such high esteem as it helps us better undertsand and address the unique demands placed upon former and current service men and women and their families.
“I’m absolutely over the moon that we have achieved Armed Forces Covenant Silver. I think it’s a massive achievement; well done to all those involved. As a company, we are fully supportive of the armed forces, we do a lot of work in this area, and we will continue to raise our game on this in the future. We’ve made our intentions for Gold clear and this is exactly where I want to take the company.”
– Steve Rigsby, Managing Director
