Carbon60 are delighted to announce that we have been awarded an Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award. Considered the highest badge of honour available, Carbon60 is proud to be recognised alongside 99 other businesses who have achieved this award in 2019, including Amazon UK, Bovis Homes, GE & Rolls Royce.
The ERS aims to recognise employers who operate within the Armed Forces Covenant and share the promise to ensure those who serve, who have served in Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly.
Building on our Silver Award, which we achieved in 2018, Carbon60 have developed our support across everything from dedicated HR policies for Reservists and support for families of those serving, to our Connect Mentoring programme and regularly attending Career Transition Partnership events; support for our armed services is at the heart of what we do at Carbon60.
Managing Director, Paul Nolan:
"We are all extremely proud to receive this award. Having worked in partnership with the MOD for many years we understand the importance of providing equal opportunities to those who are leaving, or still serving in our armed forces and their families. It is thanks to the hard work of everyone at Carbon60 who demonstrate this every day with the support they provide to the wider forces and ex-forces community.
Bruno Wood, Head of Government Projects here at Carbon60, and Squadron Leader, adds:
"I'm absolutely delighted and deeply honoured that Carbon60 have been recognised with the Gold Awad. Our commitment to the Armed Forces is at the heart of our business and this award demonstrates our commitment and shared values. Armed Forces veterans and Reserves bring such rich skills to any business and this award truly demonstrates that Carbon60 recognises that."
We are looking forward to attending the ceremony at the National Army Museum on 12th November 2019 to be presented with the award.
