K Sharp are incredibly proud and honoured to have been announced as winners of the prestigious Silver Award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, demonstrating our commitment and support to UK Armed Forces through the Armed Forces Covenant. Many of our current and previous employees are veterans and reservists. This in turn gives us amazing insight in our ongoing work at the forefront of innovation in the defence sector.
To achieve Silver, we have proactively demonstrated that the Armed Forces community are not unfairly disadvantaged as part of our recruitment policies. We have also actively ensure our workforce is aware of our positive policies towards Defence people issues for Reservists, Veterans, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, and spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces.
We are one of only 24 companies in Wales that have been selected for the silver award, which makes it even more special!
Minister for Defence People and Veterans, Leo Docherty, in making the announcement, said:
“I would like to thank all the organisations who have proven their support for the Defence community during such unprecedented and challenging times.
“The vast range of those recognised this year demonstrates how employing the Armed Forces community makes a truly positive and beneficial impact for all employers, regardless of size, sector or location.”
