As part of our ongoing commitment to support the Armed Forces community, Reds10 was thrilled to hear we have been given a Silver Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).
The Silver award follows our pledge of support as part of the Armed Forces Covenant and the Bronze award previously.
The ERS encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
As a silver award winner, Reds10 has shown it actively communicates and upholds a positive stance for employees who are veterans, Reservists and Cadet Force Adult volunteers, as well as spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces.
“Supporting the armed forces is something that is, unsurprisingly, dear to Reds10. Whether that is on our projects, where the armed forces are a key client and partner, or within our company. Several of our team members were proudly armed forces personnel in the past. This includes not just myself and my son, who also works for Reds10 and is currently a Reservist, but also our Non-Executive Director and colleagues across our sites, factory and offices.”
“Reds10 is an armed forces friendly employer, in the true sense of the word. It’s part of our DNA. Our partnership with BuildForce has proven particularly successful, and this is the next step. This award means a great deal to Reds10 and recognises the enormous contribution and commitment that our service men and women make in defence of our country. Next stop: Gold Award!”
