The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge to acknowledge and understand those who serve or who have served in the armed forces and their families and that the forces community should be treated with fairness and respect.
Pinnacle, along with 50 other Welsh employers have received Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) ‘Silver Awards’ from the Ministry of Defence (MOD) for their support of the Armed Forces Community after signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
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.
Silver award winners must meet varied criteria, such as; employ at least one individual from the Armed Forces community, actively ensure that their workforce is aware of their positive policies, demonstrate support to mobilisations of reservists and provide at least five days additional leave for training.
Pinnacle are proud to hold such a prestigious award and continue to support the Armed Forces community within all business operations.
